Webinar: Best Practices for Public Notice
The newspaper industry has had a lot of success protecting public notice in the state legislatures, but collectively we're on the defensive. Our opponents are more motivated than ever and increasingly sophisticated in their arguments. Every newspaper must play a role in this fight. This session will focus on the state of public notice and the best practices that every publisher should follow to help the industry maintain its rightful position as the publisher of official notice of public actions.
