Skip Navigation LinksNYPA Spring Convention/Trade Show

Every spring, NYPA holds the largest newspaper training conference in the country. Seminar speakers, recognized as leaders in their fields, conduct more than 60 educational sessions on all subjects important to community newspaper personnel.

The convention provides invaluable networking opportunities, separate training tracks for publishers, editors, reporters, photographers, advertising managers, advertising sales representatives, and graphics and production personnel.


We want to thank everyone who attended this years' convention. We hoped you learned a lot while having time to catch up with old friends and colleagues.
