National Newspaper Association's Leadership Summit 2015

January 22, 2015

The National Newspaper Association's 2015 Leadership Summit: We Believe In NewspapersMarch 18-19, Arlington, VA

How much of your advertising revenue can you afford to give up?

Your advertisers might soon be unable to deduct their full advertising expense. Uncle Sam wants to slash the long-standing deduction to raise advertisers' taxes even higher!

Cutting advertising expense deductibility is now on the table in both the House and Senate. Advertising is the economic engine that drives local economies. More government intervention will hurt your pocketbook. Thousands of communities across America could be harmed. Advertising should continue to be a fully deductible business expense!

Join the National Newspaper Association in the battle against advertising taxes. Register HERE.

Missouri Press Association Seeking Executive Director

January 8, 2015

The Missouri Press Association, one of the most active and storied newspaper associations in the country (our Hall of Fame includes Twain and the Pulitzers), seeks an executive director to lead the organization and further the cause of an independent and thriving press. The duties include member relations and development; government relations and lobbying; sales, marketing and fundraising; community and industry relations; public speaking; programs and event planning; and staff, P&L, and administrative management. Meaningful experience in each of these areas is a job requirement, as are strong communications skills, superior organizational ability, and professional polish.

We will show preference to candidates with a background in journalism and media issues, association management, and government relations. The executive director manages an eight-member team and reports to the MPA board of directors. We offer competitive pay, excellent benefits, and the opportunity to work in a dynamic university community -- Columbia, MO, home to the nation’s first journalism school, which we helped found, and the future-oriented Reynolds Journalism Institute.

Please send your resume, a cover letter that addresses how you fulfill each of the above criteria, and any other supporting materials to jerobertson@columbiatribune.com.

No phone calls please.
