Presented by the Minnesota News Media Institute, in partnership with the Minnesota Newspaper Association and meeting chair Chris Knight, APG Media of Minnesota.
The annual MNA Daily meeting is always a participant favorite. Leaders from daily newspapers (and non-dailies too!) are invited to participate in this two-day summit. The program will kick off Thursday at noon with lunch at the Historic Lumber Exchange Building, home of the Minnesota Newspaper Association (10 S. 5th St., Minneapolis).
The afternoon will feature lively and interactive discussions focused on revenue, innovation and current best practices in advertising, editorial and management. Returning again this year will be the popular Daily Meeting Idea Exchange. Prizes will be awarded to the participant who brings the best idea from the past year.
