President's Message | March 2, 2020

March Comes in with a Deadline

And that deadline is today for entering the Hometown Media Awards – the largest celebration of the excellent work that PEG channels do every day in America.  
We’ll celebrate achievements by organizations and program producers from around the country on July 1 at the ACM’s National Conference in Chicago, IL.  

But before that happens, you have to enter. Click here to enter. The deadline is today at 11:59 pm Pacific Time.  

Proceeds from the competition benefit the educational programs of the ACM Foundation – which this year is once again hosting the Emerging Leaders Institute in conjunction with the conference.  

If you’re proud of the work you and your producers are doing in your community – of the difference you make every day in people’s lives – now is the time to tell that story by entering the HMAs. Set aside the time today because we won’t extend that deadline!

Good luck!  

Emerging Leaders Institute

And speaking of the Emerging Leaders Institute, we are now accepting registrations for folks who want to take the leadership training with Paula Manley and Toni Tabora Roberts on June 28 & 29, and we are accepting applications for scholarships to the Institute.
