Feeling grateful for the networking opportunities and connections I’ve made since I started attending @onastl meetings last year. Love the internewsroom collaboration  #Happy20thONA — Caitlin Lally
My first @ONA event was in 2016, after I had already joined as staff. It was an audience engagement deep-dive, and I knew from the moment I saw a room full of brilliant folks working to make journalism better, I had found my people. #Happy20thONA — Meghan Murphy, ONA Senior Manager, Communities & Local Journalism Initiatives
