Digital Journalism Insights: Lightning Talks from ONA Board Candidates and VIP Meetup

We’ll hear from key leaders in the digital journalism community -- candidates for ONA’s Board of Directors -- about how they approach the balance of innovation, engagement, revenue and, of course, core journalism work. Stick around for a brief meetup and a chance to ask some one-on-one questions of those who may guide ONA in the next few years.

This session is designed for:

  • Anyone who wants a “big picture” look at current trends in journalism -- if you’re at our conference or watching online … that’s you!
  • Executives who want a glimpse as to what their peers see as emerging issues
  • ONA members who want more information about Board of Directors candidate slate to help inform their voting
