The board meets every six weeks and actively works to support the interests of member newspapers while keeping a pulse on legislative issues that affect the organization, planning the annual Fall Conference, and choosing Hall of Fame inductees.

The board welcomes potential members from all newspaper departments, including news, advertising, circulation and business. We’re also seeking one associate member.
