Nominate your star employee for SNPA's mentor program
Nominate your "rising star" to participate in the 2018-19 SNPA NEX GEN mentor program. The deadline for applications is Aug. 1.
This year-long program offers newspaper professionals with executive potential the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally. The program offers a variety of events and activities throughout the year that are designed to strengthen participants' industry knowledge, professional relationships, analytical skills and aptitude for innovation.
The capstone of this program is the pairing of participants with a seasoned industry expert from outside his or her own company for an ongoing mentorship throughout the year.
NEX GEN mentors include publishers, CEOs and executives from marketing/advertising, circulation, production and digital operations. If SNPA selects a candidate for this program who would benefit from a different type of mentor, a suitable mentor will be recruited.
Throughout the year, NEX GEN program participants will talk one-on-one with their mentors and meet via video conference with other program participants. They also will meet with each other and their mentors at SNPA's News Industry Summit, Oct. 10-12 in Nashville, Tenn. In addition, they will meet the following October in Chicago for the 2019 SNPA/Inland Joint Annual Meeting.
The SNPA Foundation will subsidize travel expenses to attend these meetings, including hotel rooms, registration fee, most meals and up to $350 for the purchase of airplane tickets.
Don't miss this opportunity to nominate the best and the brightest from your newspaper.
