At the PRNDI Conference on Friday, NPR leaders outlined a new effort to collaborate with member stations through regional hubs. They said the initiative would better synthesize local member station coverage within regions, and improve the network's ability to cover stories nationwide.

NPR's Collaborative Coverage Senior Editor Bruce Auster, who's heading the initiative, held a breakout session entitled Imagining a Collaborative Journalism Network.

"We want this to be like NATO  for public radio," he said. 

The two-day PRNDI/NPR Editor Training and the two-day News Manager Training session at this year's Miami conference have now filled up.  There are no more seats available in either of those sessions.  

There are still seats available in the Environmental Field Trip, Moneyball Your Reporting w ith Brian Mann, and Beyond Radio: Telling Stories Online and on Social Media with Al Tompkins. 

Seating in all of our pre-conference training sessions is limited, and on a first-come, first-served basis.  All pre-conference sessions require a confirmation code before you can register.
