Questions continue to swirl in the digital journalism community about how best to meet readers’ needs and expectations while creating dynamic, quality stories across multiple platforms. We’ll hear from key leaders in the digital journalism community — candidates for ONA’s Board of Directors — about how they approach the balance of these factors at their organizations, what they envision as next iterations for our industry and what the teams producing those elements might look like. Stick around for a brief meetup and a chance to ask some one-on-one questions of those who may guide ONA in the next few years.
