Forum Communications Publishers' Retreat in Willmar, MN

Nora Paul gives keynote presentation "Web Opportunities for Community News"

On June 2nd INMS Director Nora Paul traveled to Wilmar to give the keynote presentation for Forum Communications Publishers' retreat. Forum's motto, "Giving Information Life" was the theme of the retreat. It fit well Paul's presentation about the ways digital news can provide local newspapers new ways to connect with their communities. The issue for many small newspapers is the lack of time and support for their websites, so the focus of the talk was on simple ways to use online storytelling to help the community tell its own stories and for the newsroom to better communicate with its readers. Paul's presentation to the Publishers can be seen FORUM Communications.ppt
