As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and cases surge due to the omicron variant, Missouri Press has made the decision to postpone its annual Day at the Capitol meeting in Jefferson City.
The new date for the Day at the Capitol meeting, which is free for all Missouri Press Association members to attend, will be announced when it is determined. Keep an eye out on future Missouri Press publications and communications from the Association for more information about Day at the Capitol.
Traditionally held in late January, Day at the Capitol gives Missouri Press Association members a chance to meet with their legislators in the Capitol building to discuss issues important to the Missouri newspaper industry. The event, which has approximately 80-100 attendees each year, usually culminates with lunch at the Governor’s Mansion and a question-and-answer session with the Governor.
If you have any questions about Day at the Capitol, please contact MPA Executive Director Mark Maassen at (573) 449-4167, ext. 308, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
