Set virtual meetings with your Congressional delegations March 15-17

Mar 17, 2022

NNA’s 2022 Community Newspaper Summit will now be a digital event.

Participants are urged to use March 15-17 to schedule virtual meetings with their Congressional delegations. NNA will distribute talking points on key issues in early March as we see how the rest of the 117th Congress is shaping up.

NNA Chair Brett Wesner, president of Wesner Publications, Cordell, Oklahoma, said, “NNA is always reluctant to lose the opportunity for in-person meetings with our Congressional delegations. But we also are mindful that our industry is very pressed for time right now. Since most Congressional offices are urging a preference for digital meetings, we want to use everyone’s commitment respectfully.

"As the year winds on, we will see a need for more focused visits on specific issues. This may be the year when some form of our Summit is going on almost every week, as our Congressional Action Team builds on our success with the Postal Service Reform Act of 2022. We have challenges ahead and we are outfitting our team to be ready for them."
