"I consider this the most valuable industry experience available."
Leonard Woolsey, publisher of the Galveston County Daily News

The Leadership Forum – SNPA's premier program for the publishers and owners of small newspapers – is a unique event where newspaper executives explore issues most important to them and tap the industry's best minds for practical solutions.

This year's program will be led by Tim Griggs and Steven King, who specialize in new revenue models for sustaining journalism.  They will lead discussions about diversifying and growing ways to earn revenue, partnership possibilities, targeting content to meet audience needs, and strategies for moving occasional users into loyal, paying customers.  You can't afford to miss this!

  • Register here. The $525 registration fee includes group meals and all program costs.

"Publishers who attend this conference will leave Chapel Hill energized
and motivated to meet the challenges they face."
Les High, editor of The News Reporter, Whiteville, N.C., and program moderator
