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 firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to (209) 578-2207. For more information, call Judy Sly at (209) 578-2317 or email email@example.com. The deadline for applications for the 2014 program is Oct. 25.
