SCPA offers virtual FOI and legal training during COVID-19

For years SCPA has offered free in-newsroom training on libel, FOI and other topics.
Unfortunately due to the pandemic, it’s not possible for SCPA Executive Director Bill Rogers and our legal team to travel to member newspapers for in-person training so we’re now offering free, individualized digital training for SCPA member newspapers.

Whether your staff is working in the newsroom or remotely from home, we can connect with the staff of your newspaper via Zoom to go over open government, libel and other legal topics.
“It’s a good time to train newer reporters on these important topics, and to offer a refresher for your whole newsroom,” Rogers said.   

Each session is roughly an hour long, depending on the topics you’d like covered. Call or email Jen Madden for more details and to schedule a session for your newsroom.
