BY JASON AKST, MA, INSTRUCTOR, NIU DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNICATION

“The further a society drifts from the truth, the more
it will hate those that speak it.”
George Orwell

Time is running out to register for “Trusting News,” a half-day seminar of strategies for news organizations to build/rebuild trust between us and the audiences we serve.

Screen Shot 2019-08-27 at 8.35.48 PMThe seminar begins at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at NIU-Naperville (1120 E. Diehl Road, Naperville).

I have attached a mini-poster for your convenience and for you to share with journalism colleagues. The seminar is not intended for the general public, but journalism practitioners/educators don’t have to be NINA members to attend.

Remember:

The seminar is free, but space is limited to the first 50 registrants.

Please take a moment now to register by emailing Shelley Hendricks (shendricks@niu.edu). Registration deadline is extended until the workshop is full.

See you Saturday!
