The Bee invites visiting editor applicants for 2014

October 11, 2013 

Every year, The Bee invites readers to join its Editorial Board to discuss and comment on local and regional issues. Visiting editors serve for three months and attend the weekly meetings of the board, usually held Wednesday afternoons. The 60- to 90-minute sessions often include community leaders talking about a range of subjects. Visiting editors participate in the candidate endorsement process and have the opportunity to write monthly mini-editorials on topics of their choice.

To apply, send a letter explaining your interest and a copy of your résumé to jsly@modbee.com or fax to (209) 578-2207. For more information, call Judy Sly at (209) 578-2317 or email jsly@modbee.com. The deadline for applications for the 2014 program is Oct. 25.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
