I hope everyone is enjoying the first signs of Fall. Here is a quick update on what we’ve been working on this past month:
Register for the Fall Symposium Oct. 23
Whether you work for a large corporation or an entrepreneurial family-owned newspaper–we all face similar industry challenges. We might share best-practices within our own companies, but rarely do we have the opportunity to learn from peers outside our organization. The Fall Symposium is a relaxed half-day idea-sharing session. This year, we’re holding the symposium at The Charlotte Observer in Charlotte, NC. The event is free to all MACMA members and includes lunch. Learn more and register here.
Mark your calendars: MACMA Conference 2016 Date and Location
The conference date is confirmed for Sunday, April 24 – Tuesday, April 26 in Greenville, SC at the Hilton Greenville. Please check back for more details of the conference line-up.
USPS Statement of Ownership Filing Deadline Approaching
A friendly reminder from our NCPA partner, Laura Nakoneczny: It’s getting close to that time of year again to file the statement of ownership for each of your periodical publications. It must be submitted to the Postal Service by October 1. This is a must-do item as if it is not submitted within 10 days of October 1, your periodical mailing privileges could be suspended until compliance is achieved.
National Newspaper Week materials now online
October 4 – 10 marks the 75th anniversary of National Newspaper Week. This year’s theme is “Power of the Press” and a tremendous package of editorials, cartoons, columns and graphics has been put together for you to download free of charge at nationalnewspaperweek.com thanks to the work of NAM (Newspaper Association Managers), and with financial support from various state newspaper associations.
See you at the Fall Symposium!

I hope everyone is having a good summer. We’re getting ready for fall here at MACMA. Here is a quick update on what we’ve been working on this summer:
It’s “back-to-school” here at MACMA, as we plan for our Annual Symposium in October. In the past, symposiums have been held in each state. This year, we’re considering combining the symposiums into one event at a central location such as Charlotte. Remember, the Symposium is free for all active members. Tell me what you think.
Members, have you switched jobs or newspapers recently? Do we have your most up-to-date contact information? We’ve sent an email to all our current members with the membership information we have on file. Please review and respond with any corrections. If you didn’t get an email from us, we may not have your email on file. Please review the your information in the Member Directory and follow the instructions to make changes.
Valued vendors and partners, we are making upgrades to our Preferred Vendor Directory. A listing in this directory is a benefit of your associate membership. We are updating each listing to make sure we have the correct contact information including address and website. We have also expanded your listing to include a brief description of your products and services. We have sent an email to the most recent associate member who last renewed membership. If your membership is current, and you did not receive an email from us, please contact me.
