Patrick Birmingham named to SNPA Board of Directors
Eight newspaper executives from SNPA member newspapers have been selected to participate in SNPA's 2015-16 NEX GEN class. They will be paired with experienced industry experts in a structured mentorship program.
SNPA Executive Director Edward VanHorn said that the association looked at new areas of expertise in its search for mentors as preparations were made to launch the NEX GEN program for its third year.
"SNPA expanded its search for mentors to include an even broader range of print and digital executive-level skills – sales and marketing, audience and content development, innovation and planning," VanHorn said. "We were not surprised when some of the brightest talent in the industry volunteered to serve as mentors. As a result of their participation, SNPA received a record number of applications from newspapers that wanted their very talented employees to participate in this remarkable opportunity for professional growth. SNPA is proud to sponsor this extraordinary program, and excited that so many newspapers see its value."
