The continuing threat of the COVID-19 virus has resulted in a decision by the Kansas Press Association Board of Directors to again have a virtual convention in 2021.
The new twist is that significant parts of the convention on May 20-21 will be conducted in cooperation with the Colorado Press Association.
Emily Bradbury, KPA executive director, will be working on plans for the joint sessions along with the CPA executive director.
“While this is not where we thought we would be by this time, we think this is the right decision and it allows us to have a joint meeting with another state, something several others have been moving toward in recent years,” she said.
More details will be forthcoming as the plans materialize, Bradbury added.
