The America’s Newspapers Executive Development Program, funded in part by the Inland Press Foundation, gives the next generation of newspaper leaders the opportunity to connect and gain valuable insights from industry leaders and their peers.
The application process has closed.
What: A six-part program focused on the core topics that emerging leaders need to further their careers. The curriculum of the program will be tactical, developmental and inspirational with participants gaining exposure to multiple disciplines. Each session will be led by industry veterans who will provide an overview of the business of newspapers and a roadmap for the skills needed to be successful. From revenue development, content, digital, finance and more, Executive Development participants will learn from the best the industry has to offer.
Where: The six-part program includes two live meetings and four virtual meetings:
Who should attend? Upwardly mobile and motivated newspaper managers who are looking to take the next steps in their career. General managers, sales leaders, editors and managers from other disciplines from local newspapers, regional operations or corporate offices are primary candidates, although other levels of organizations also will be considered. Candidates should have a proven track record of success in their careers and a commitment to the industry, overall.
What’s required? The Executive Development program requires commitment and participation! We are looking for the next generation of leaders who will engage with the program and with their peers to develop a network they can be a part of for years to come. Attendance at the kickoff meeting in April is required and attendance at the wrap-up meeting in October is strongly recommended.
Cost: The Executive Development Program costs $500 per participant and includes the in-person meetings in April and October and the virtual sessions. Participants can add on attendance at the Mega-Conference or the annual meeting for 50% off the prevailing rate. Participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses. The Executive Development Program is being subsidized by the Inland Press Foundation.
