OCNA is currently in the planning stages for Queen's Park Day which will take place on September 25, 2013.
Publishers and General Managers will be invited to meet with MPPs, senior civil servants and fellow publishers at Queen's Park to discuss issues concerning our industry and show the provincial government how important newspapers are as a viable source of information.
Meetings will be arranged with MPPs throughout the day. A Publishers' Reception will take place in the afternoon.
Due to the success and great response of the Independent Publishers' Retreat in November at Hockley Valley Resort last year, the OCNA is in planning mode again.
Mark your calendars for June 21 - 22 and join us in Stratford.
Independent Publishers can look forward to social and networking opportunities, informative sessions, food and fun.
Stay tuned for registration and program information.
