50-Year Club nominations window open for July induction

The Tennessee Press Association seeks nominations to recognize individuals with 50 or more years of service to the newspaper industry by inducting them into the 50-Year Club during the TPA Summer Convention on July 22 in Franklin.

Up to 12 industry associates with 50 or more years of service will be inducted into the Club during the luncheon. Nominees must still be active in the industry and have 50 years or more of service, regardless of the position held within the newspaper. The fifty year total may include work in other states.

Honorees will receive a 50-Year Club plaque and their stories will be told in a special publication in The Tennessee Press.

The nomination form is available online at
www.tnpress.com/forms/50YearClubNomination.pdf. The deadline to submit a nomination for the 2016 class has been extended to Monday, May 9.

According to TPA records, the 50-Year-Club was established to coincide with TPA’s 100th anniversary and recognition spanned from 1969-1971. The honors were restored by the Board of Directors in 2014 with the most recent induction in February 2015.

Keys to Open Government

Keys to Open Government” a long-awaited 52-page guide to Tennessee’s open records and open meetings laws, was released in February 2015. (Download a copy of the PDF)

Written by Frank Gibson, TPA Public Policy Director, and edited by colleague Deborah Fisher at the Tennessee Coalition for Open Government, “Keys” is a guide we hope will help journalists and citizens use “the law.” The guide was made possible with a grant from the Tennessee Press Association Foundation.
