BND seeks readers for advisory board

We’re looking for readers of the Belleville News-Democrat and who want to join our readership advisory board.

The board meets with the BND’s publisher and editor quarterly for lunch to pass along coverage ideas, give advice, ask questions and learn more about what’s happening at the BND.

This year, we are redesigning our digital platforms and our newspaper, and the advisory board will take on an even more important role in giving us feedback as we make these changes.

If you want to volunteer to be a member of the board, please send your cover letter and resume to Dawn Peil at or PO Box 427, Belleville, Illinois, 62222.

If you have any questions about the group, please contact Jeffry Couch, the BND’s editor, at
