American Press Institute (API)

The American Press Institute was formed in 1946 by executives in the newspaper industry as a not-for-profit organization devoted to the mission of developing leaders and executives in the industry. Today, nearly 60 years later, the founding purpose is still current: to contribute to the improvement of American newspapers by giving experienced newspaper men and women from all functions of the enterprise the opportunity to study and discuss the techniques of their work and the social, economic, and political issues of the day. More than 1,200 news industry leaders attend one or more of the 45 seminars offered annually at API's Reston, VA, campus or satellite facilities.

Additionally, the Institute's divisions, The Media Center, The Learning Newsroom project, and the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism have become the industry's research centers for change in how news is gathered, edited, distributed and received in the digital era.
