|Dear FSNE colleague: Your board of directors has amended our bylaws to broaden our membership criteria to include news leaders in the electronic media, including TV. The changes allow membership for leaders of news sites that don’t use either the term editor or news director. We can also add academic and institutional leaders connected to our work.
The amended membership sections are modeled on ASNE’s and are attached.
We will increase board membership from 14 to 15 to provide representation to our new classification of members.
I am excited by this opportunity to extend our reach in the profession, recognize important structural changes underway and increase our effectiveness in defending our Sunshine laws. I encourage each of you to reach out and recruit electronic leaders in your market.
Editor and General Manager
