2019 Convention

See you in New Orleans!

We are excited to announce that in 2019, the American Society of News Editors and the Associated Press Media Editors will be joining forces. With this merger, ASNE and APME will become NLA, the News Leaders Association. This is an exciting time and our new organization will continue to advocate for strong leadership, a diverse and inclusive workforce and defend against challenges to the First Amendment. We ask that you join us and provide your expertise and leadership as we move forward this year.
The 2018 ASNE-APME conference in Austin, Texas was a big success. This year, we'll be in New Orleans, Louisiana, Sept. 9-10. Registration for the 2019 News Leaders Association Conference is open. Register now!

We have an electronic schedule available here that will be continuously updated as we get closer to #NLAinNOLA.


The registration fee is $275 for members of ASNE and APME and $375 for nonmembers. 

Special rates are also available for retired members, spouses, students and APME's Regents.

Lunch tickets are not included in the price of registration. Don't forget to purchase Monday and Tuesday lunch tickets during registration. If you did not purchase lunch tickets at the time of registration, then you can do so through the online store

If you can't attend the entire convention, then register for individual days for $150 (members) or $200 (nonmembers) per day on Monday and Tuesday. 

If you are a student, then you can register for only $50. You will still need to purchase lunch tickets but yours are only $10, so make sure to add them to your cart before you checkout!

And don't forget to register your spouse/companion! 


A terrific group rate is available at the New Orleans Marriott for $179 per night until Aug. 16. To book a room, click here or call 504-581-1000 and mention the ASNE-APME event.
