Extraordinary program planned for inaugural Annual Meeting of new, merged association

Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of history as the Inland Press Association and Southern Newspaper Publishers Association hold their inaugural Annual Meeting as a new, merged association – united in their determination to champion newspapers.

Expect a meeting that mixes the practical and the forward-looking in the service of making your newspaper even stronger, across all platforms from print to digital, and from a wide variety of revenue streams.

Expect, in other words, all the advantages you’ve always enjoyed from SNPA and Inland conferences – all in the collegial atmosphere of networking you’ve also come to expect.

The registration fee for Inland and SNPA members is $795.

First-time newspaper attendees – those who have never attended an Inland or SNPA annual meeting before – can register at the first-time rate of $595 (members) or $895 (non-members).

Team discounts also are available to newspapers that send five or more employees from the same paper.  Contact Carley Lintz at to request the team discount for the fifth (and additional) staff members.
