The launch of the Maine Press Association’s new public notice repository, Mainenotices.com, is almost here! The site will go live to the public by July 1. Over the coming weeks, the Florida Press Association (FPA) — our vendor who is coordinating the construction of the site — will start communicating with member papers about its features, and lead two webinars for members about how to upload notices.
The FPA has already provided a draft user guide for Mainenotices.com, which is now available on the MPA website.
The two webinars are scheduled for
- Monday, June 16, at 1 p.m.
- Wednesday, June 25, at 1 p.m.
Both webinars will be organized and lead by Kendra Schubert from FPA. Kendra will be the point of contact for members leading up to the launch of the site, and will answer questions and concerns about it. She will send out the details about viewing the webinars.
Please share this information with the appropriate people in your organization who will work with Mainenotices.com, and provide their contact information to Kendra for updates and webinar information. Kendra’s email address is: KSchubert@flpress.com
As of July 1, state law mandates that newspapers with legal standing to carry notices must upload their notices in a timely fashion to this repository. Otherwise, that newspaper risks losing the ability to carry notices at all.
For questions, please contact Tony Ronzio at email@example.com, Kendra, or Executive Director Diane Norton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
