Oct. 6-8 SNPA-Inland Annual Meeting

Retaining public notices, funding journalism and more; you can't afford to miss the Annual Meeting


We've packed a lot into three days: A celebration of the merger of SNPA and Inland Press Association and a jam-packed program filled with compelling topics you asked for.

Newspaper management, retaining public notice revenue, marketing, advertising sales, newsroom strategies, digital, social media, circulation and audience development topics are all on the agenda for the Annual Meeting of SNPA and Inland Press Association, Oct. 6-8 in Chicago.

And, we have special newspaper team discounts to enable publishers to bring their department heads with them to ensure that none of the breakout sessions have to be missed!  First-time attendee rates also are available to newspaper executives.

Be here when the name of the new association is announced and take part in the celebration of the merger, which was requested by a nearly unanimous number of SNPA and Inland members.
