Community Newspapers Program, Oct. 20-21, Columbia

In Association News On

The Missouri School of Journalism and the Missouri Press Association have put together a program for newspaper publishers and editors titled “Community Newspapers: Tomorrow has arrived. How to take charge of the opportunities for success in the print and digital world.”


The program will be Thursday-Friday, Oct. 20-21, at the Reynolds Journalism Institute in Columbia. It will begin at 10 a.m. Thursday so you can drive in, and end in time on Friday so you can get back to cover your football games.


The first 30 MPA members who sign up will get a FREE night’s hotel stay. All meals also are FREE! 


Walter Potter, a graduate of the School and a retired community newspaper owner in Virginia, is underwriting the cost of the event in honor of his late father, Walter B. Potter, Sr.


That means FREE meals during the conference and no registration costs. And, again, FREE lodging on Thursday night for the first 30 MPA members to sign up.




To register, contact Janet Jensen at the School:; 573-882-8694.
