Dear readers and supporters,
The Center for Public Integrity today undertook personnel and salary changes that put our organization on a solid financial footing for 2012. Sadly, that required laying off four professionals who are valued colleagues and friends. These are the positions we have had to cut:
Two of our Managing Editors; an Office Manager; and a videographer.
These individuals have done outstanding work for the Center and their commitment and loyalty have been valued enormously. We wish them the very best for the future.
Five other open positions have been eliminated and there has been some additional restructuring.
With the support of our board, we are going into 2012 with a leaner budget by about $2 million. We believe we have taken appropriate action, however hard, to remain effective as one of the strongest non-profit investigative journalism organizations anywhere. We are committed to delivering outstanding journalism in the public interest with a slightly smaller and even more efficient digital newsroom.
