Dear NMPW members,
Are you planning to go to the national conference in Salt Lake City this year? If so, there is financial support available from NFPW and NMPW for registration fees. (If you’re not sure yet, here’s a link to information about the conference and there’s a lot more on a special conference Facebook page:
If this will be your first NFPW conference, please apply to National Federation of Press Women for a First Timers Grant to cover your entire registration fee. Here’s the link for further information:
Also contact NMPW Treasurer Carol Kreis of your intention to attend. The NMPW board has allocated $1,050 to pay up to half of the NFPW conference registration fee for our NFPW/NMPW members who do not receive or qualify for the First Timers Grant. Those who notify Carol of their intention to attend by May 31 will have first priority for the funds. If you make that request, you will be notified on June 1 of the amount NMPW will cover so you may so indicate on your registration form for the NFPW conference (then you can just pay the remaining amount and NMPW will pay our portion to NFPW directly). If all funds are not allocated by June 1, those who decide to attend after that date may contact Carol to find out if funds are still available to help pay the registration fee.
We hope to see you in Salt Lake City!
President, Las Cruces & New Mexico Press Women
