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.
The 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.
The seminar is free, but space is limited to the first 50 registrants.
Please take a moment now to register by emailing Shelley Hendricks (email@example.com). Registration deadline is extended until the workshop is full.
See you Saturday!
