Dear Editor:

The Alberta Press Council is seeking a new public member for the AWNA readership area. Former public member, Mary Jane Harper, a tireless member of the Alberta Press Council, has recently completed her three-year term.

We invite the public to visit www.albertapresscouncil.ca to read “all about us” and find an invitation to apply for this volunteer position.

The Alberta Press Council serves to protect the public’s interest in and ensures access to full, fair and accurate news reporting. It also serves to preserve the freedom of the press while providing a forum for greater understanding and communication between the press and the public.

We look forward to receiving applications from the Alberta Weekly Newspapers Association’s interested readers as they seek the position of public member by June 30.

Bauni Mackay, chair,
