SNPA's Leadership Forum is an investment in your future


Here is a gift you can give yourself.  It is worth hundreds of times what you pay for it, and it is a rock-solid investment in your own future and the future of your company:

Attend the Carmage Walls Leadership Forum,

SNPA's premier program for the publishers and owners of small newspapers

The Leadership Forum is a unique event where newspaper executives explore issues most important to them and tap the industry's best minds for practical solutions. It is designed specifically for executives from newspapers with circulations of 30,000 or less.

This year's program will be led by Tim Griggs and Steven King, who specialize in new revenue models for sustaining journalism.  Their topics include:

  • Targeting content
  • Meeting audience needs
  • Moving occasional users to become paying loyalists
  • Diversifying and growing ways to earn revenue
  • Developing partnerships that lower your cost structure

"Publishers who attend this conference will leave Chapel Hill energized and motivated to meet the challenges they face."

Les High, editor and owner of The News Reporter, Whiteville, N.C., and program moderator

The meeting will be held Feb. 4-6 at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, N.C. – and time is running out to register.  Attendance is limited, and only a few places remain.
