An important moment in history 7/16/19

By PJ Browning, president and publisher of The Post and Courier, Charleston, S.C., and president of SNPA

It's never been more important for our industry to speak with one voice and champion the value of local news. Combining the experience and talents of the Inland Press Association and the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association will help ensure that voice remains loud and clear.

We will continue to serve the mission and constituents of these two longstanding organizations as we plot a new course for the traditional newspaper business. Not only will we continue to provide the networking and training opportunities both organizations are known for, we will tackle many of the biggest issues facing our members.

We will maintain a keen focus on the power and importance of local journalism and the myriad ways we serve our unique communities. We don't write and report for the pundits in Washington, D.C.; we write and report for the people who live and work in the areas we serve. It will become increasingly important for us to widely share that message.

Here is what we all know ...

SNPA and Inland to consolidate! 7/1/19

By Edward VanHorn, executive director

I am happy to announce that the members of SNPA and Inland have voted overwhelming to consolidate into a new association that will launch on October 1. This is great news for the newspaper industry!

The consolidation is the result of many months of hard work by leaders from both SNPA and Inland. Our united goal was to develop a new association that will build on our strengths to serve our members not just for today, but also for the future.

The new association will provide a strong voice for newspapers, promote the indispensable value of newspaper journalism to local communities, and support newspapers as they adapt their business models to a quickly changing landscape.
