More from this event →

We’ll hear from key leaders in the digital journalism community – candidates for ONA’s Board of Directors – about their approach to balancing innovation, engagement, revenue and, of course, core journalism. The brief meetup that follows is a chance to ask one-on-one questions of those who want to guide ONA over the next few years.

This session is designed for:

  • Anyone who wants a “big picture” look at current trends in journalism: if you’re at our conference or watching online, that’s you!
  • Executives looking for a glimpse at what their peers see as emerging issues
  • ONA members and voters who want more information about the Board of Directors candidate slate
