Each year the Newspaper Staff Training Calendar offers ONA members continuing education opportunities. These are professional training sessions taught by experienced instructors and prominent industry experts.

Most of the sessions are offered as 1-hour webinars through the “Online Media Campus” in partnership with the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association and the Iowa Newspaper Foundation.

In addition, please note that ONA members receive a discount for all Local Media Association events and webinars (which is the “Media Association Partners” rate). Simple register for any LMA event or webinar at the Media Association Partner rate and indicate that you're an ONA member.
