From story ideas to government accountability, learn how important public notices are to newspapers.  Not only do they provide essential advertising revenue, they also keep citizens informed of critical issues.  As a reporter, you can use these notices to find leads for outstanding and impactful stories.  Hear from Jim Lockwood, staff writer at The Times-Tribune, Scranton, and five-time winner of the PNA Foundation’s Public Notice Journalism Award, on how to dig into important – yet often unnoticed – local issues by checking your notices.  Holly Lubart, PNA’s Director of Government Affairs, shares how public notices are constantly under legislative attack while explaining their value to PNA members and the communities they cover.

This one-hour webinar beings promptly at 12 noon.  You must have a computer and a phone in order to participate.

Cost is just $10 for PNA and PSNE members; $20 for non-members.  To register, email foundation@pa-news.org or phone (717) 703-3012. Confirmation details with log in information will be emailed one or two days in advance of the training.

Presented by the PNA Foundation and the Pennsylvania Society of News Editors (PSNE).
