Want to keep the inspiration going after ONA19 and connect with ONA members in your hometown? ONA Local is our network of community-organized meetup groups that gather to talk digital journalism year-round. We’re in more than 70 cities, campuses and countries around the world, and growing fast.

Stop by this facilitated workshop with ONA staff and organizers who have started successful groups to learn the steps to apply for a new group and brainstorm ideas to get started.

This session is designed for:

  • Anyone interested in continuing to connect with journalists in their local communities after ONA19
  • People who want to learn how to organize local journalism groups
  • People who want to get more involved in an existing ONA Local group
