Meet the NTEN Community
The NTEN Community is full of great folks. Here are just a few of them.
Community Media Workshop
Gordon Mayer is vice president of Community Media Workshop, a Midwest nonprofit whose mission is to
diversify voices in the news and public debate. Journalists rely on its
newstips and sourcing services, and more than 2,000 nonprofit
communicators a year access the services of the Workshop: the Getting
On the Air, Online & Into Print media guide, Making Media
Connections annual conference, plus scheduled, custom, and free
workshops on communications. His exposure to social media began with 40
community organizers chanting "listserv now, listerv now!" in 1998.
It's been mostly uphill since.
