Kickoff session of new Executive Development Program held April 9-10


The kickoff session of the new Executive Development Program hosted by America's Newspapers and funded by the Inland Press Foundation was held April 9-10 in Orlando, Florida, in advance of the Mega-Conference.

An opening dinner was held on April 9 to enable participants to get to know each other and full-day sessions were held on April 10.

This is a six-part program focused on the core topics that emerging leaders need to further their careers. The curriculum is tactical, developmental and inspirational with participants gaining exposure to multiple disciplines. Each session was led by industry veterans who provided an overview of the business of newspapers and a roadmap for the skills needed to be successful.

Four virtual meetings (via Zoom) will be held over the next few months, followed by a wrap-up session Oct. 14-15 at The Roosevelt Hotel in New Orleans, as part of the America’s Newspapers annual meeting.

This program is designed for emerging 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.

Watch for information later this year about taking part in the 2023 Class.
