Membership Has Its Benefits

  • Thursday, Sep 13 – 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM
  • JW Grand Ballrooms 1+2
  • #ONA18Membership

Membership models are as diverse as the organizations that use them, with plenty of experimentation in recent years. We’ll gather journalists leading for-profit, non-profit and professional society membership-centered newsrooms to discuss lessons on everything from benefits to niche audience segmentation.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists and editors working in member-oriented newsrooms
  • Organizations considering restructuring or moving to a membership model
  • Anyone who wants a firmer understanding of membership models
  • Speakers
