Convention is June 9, 10 in Newton

Posted June 7, 2022

It's convention week. We hope to see you at the Meridian Center in Newton on Thursday and Friday as we learn and celebrate together after a long two years apart.

Get ready to discuss important topics such as innovative solutions for community journalism issues, public notices and why they are essential to both the newspaper and the community and discuss unique circulation ideas, plus many more.

We will also gather to celebrate our Awards of Excellence winners and challenge each other in a quiz bowl-style trivia game.
