MPA ANNUAL CONVENTION

 2016 Convention 

 

The Chateau on the Lake in Branson will be the preeminent setting for all Missouri publishers and members of their newspapers’ staff Sept. 29 – Oct. 1, 2016 as Missouri Press Association (MPA) hosts its Sesquicentennial Convention. Every effort has been made to ensure the 2016 convention is a celebration worthy of 150 years of service. We have attempted to tie in the old with the new, while incorporating a little Branson flair, to observe this once-in-a-lifetime anniversary.
