If you’re interested in speaking at an ONA Insights event, please make your pitches through the Suggestion Box. Anyone can submit a proposal and all submissions will be read and reviewed by the volunteer ONA Insights program committee.
The program committee is looking for fresh, creative ideas, especially those that don’t fit the traditional panel format. Before you make your proposal, consider the following questions:
- Who is your target audience, how can you keep them engaged and what would you like them to walk away with once the session is over?
- What solutions to common issues have you been working on that other newsrooms might also be able to adapt to their work?
Keep in mind that these suggestions are often a starting point for discussions about the topics that will be covered at the conference. ONA will often ask presenters to refine their proposals or combine their ideas with other presenters to address a single topic.
The deadline for Suggestion Box submissions is Feb. 27, 2020, at 11:59 p.m. ET.
