Texas Managing Editors

Give it away, give it away, give it away, now!

Last call for donations to our Texas Managing Editors auction benefiting the Buster Haas Minority Internship Program.

If you’re coming to our TME annual convention in Temple this weekend, remember to bring auction donations with you and drop them off at the registration table when it is staffed or hand them off to Dino Chiecchi or Terry Bertling on Friday evening or early Saturday. The silent and live auction is on Saturday night at the awards ceremony in the Hilton Garden Inn Temple Medical Center.

We’re looking for all kinds of donations — prints of fantastic photos, logo items for news organizations, new books, jewelry, art of all kinds, sporting goods, home decor items, experiences, passes to events or great museums/attractions, wine/beer/booze — literally anything that would help us raise money to send young college journalists into a small Texas newsroom for a paid internship to launch their careers. 

If you have a question about whether something is a good fit for the auction (it probably is), you can ask Terry (tbertling@txstate.edu) or Dino (eec99@txstate.edu) or bring it with you. 

If you’d rather make a cash donation, you can do that through the registration link on this website, noting Buster Haas in the description.

And if you’ve somehow missed our convention notices, it’s not too late to join us for a great program lineup.
