Events and Training

Each year, the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association and the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association Foundation provide conferences and training throughout the state for the various departments of our member news media companies. These conferences and events allow our members to gather for one to three days to expand their revenue-generating opportunities, management skills, and industry knowledge through educational sessions, outstanding speakers and facilitators, networking and social events.
