The Newspaper Association of America is inviting ASNE members to attend
NAA mediaXchange 2016, the largest annual gathering of news media industry executives in North America. Taking place April 17-20 at the new Marriott Marquis in the District of Columbia, the conference is designed to inspire and provide valuable and practical ideas and insights to help news media professionals grow audience and revenue.
ASNE will be co-sponsoring the conference session "Changing the Culture: What Works," which will be moderated by ASNE President Pam Fine, Knight Chair for News, Leadership and Community at The University of Kansas. ASNE members are eligible to register at a special discounted rate of $200 (compared to a rate of $1,095).
