As you might know the next Online News Association will be held in San Francisco. What you might not know is that I’ve been wrangled in to be the program chair. This means two things.
- My father will once again accept me into his family as not being a failure.
- My continual acceptance into the Cohn household depends on how awesome the sessions are at this year’s ONA.
Don’t make me become an orphan. Contribute your session idea for this year’s ONA. The details for how it all works are below. Looking forward to seeing you in the Bay Area soon!
Help us plan sessions for the 2012 Online News Association Conference & Awards Banquet, Sept. 20-22 in San Francisco.
Our Session Selector is now open and you’re invited to submit session proposals for consideration in the ONA12 program. Submissions will be accepted through March 1. Then, from March 6 to March 29, the ONA community will vote and comment on sessions they’d like to see.
This year, there are two ways to offer your expertise at ONA12:
- If you have a session you’d like to suggest for the conference, take a look at the submission form and send us your best idea.
- If you have expertise to share with the digital journalism community and you’d like to speak at the conference, you can fill out the speaker application. As we put the program together, we may contact you.
Ideas from the community, along with input from the ONA12 conference committee, ONA staff and a member of the Board of Directors, will help the program committee create the sessions for ONA12.
As always, we look forward to seeing what you come up with.
