Spinner to headline NNA annual convention

March 1, 2019

Jackie Spinner recently produced a documentary film in Arabic. This might not be unusual, but Spinner’s day job is as an editor and journalism educator.

Spinner, who is headlining this year’s National Newspaper Association’s Annual Convention and Trade Show, started her life in Decatur, a small city in central Illinois.

Past participants of the National Newspaper Association Convention & Trade Show say they easily recoup the cost of attending with the new ideas they take home and they say their time is well spent because they return energized and inspired.

For only $435 and three days out of the office, see how you will benefit from the innovation, education and camaraderie you will experience this October in Tulsa!

NNA’s convention is a place where you can learn and innovate

June 12, 2017

I remember my first National Newspaper Association convention vividly. It was in Atlanta, in 1988. The News-Gazette had been an NNA member for many years, but no one from the newspaper had ever attended the convention. My reason for going was because a major national retailer was building a large store in our town, and the company’s marketing director was speaking at the convention. I felt I needed to hear more about the retailer’s marketing and advertising strategy, particularly as it applied to newspapers.

2016 NNA convention proved beneficial for members and vendors

April 12, 2017

As a direct result of the 2016 National Newspaper Association 130th annual convention and trade show, I was able to introduce myself to several newspaper owners. This led to numerous quoting opportunities and new business, which has benefits for the NNA member and one of NNA’s corporate partners.
