The Corporation for Public Broadcasting ("CPB") seeks a consultant ("Consultant") to facilitate a first-ever meeting of local/regional editorial leaders ("Editorial Leadership Meeting") to drive the momentum of collaboration to the next level: building a neural network of public media journalism. The Consultant must be a facilitator with significant experience facilitating large groups of 30 or more managerial-level participants with a wide range of differing views.
The meeting is tentatively scheduled for October 29-30, 2015. The Consultant will work closely with CPB and a small group of advisory editorial leaders selected by CPB to plan the agenda. CPB anticipates the meeting will include between 30 and 40 editorial leaders from CPB-funded Local Journalism Collaborations ("LJCs") and Regional Journalism Collaborations ("RJCs"), and key editors from flagship national public media news programs.
