But there are some things that fall to me for the final decision.

NNA’s convention is a place where you can learn and innovate

I remember my first National Newspaper Association convention vividly. It was in Atlanta, in 1988. The News-Gazette had been an NNA member for many years, but no one from the newspaper had ever attended the convention. My reason for going was because a major national retailer was building a large store in our town, and the company’s marketing director was speaking at the convention. I felt I needed to hear more about the retailer’s marketing and advertising strategy, particularly as it applied to newspapers.
