2018 Spring Convention Registration
The OCNA is excited to be planning the 2018 Spring Convention being held Friday April 20, 2018 at the Sheraton Parkway North Toronto Hotel in Richmond Hill.
This year we present “Community Newspapers – The Heart of the Matter”.
The one-day event will be both interesting and informative. Publishers, editors, journalists, advertising managers and sales reps will have the opportunity to learn from a variety of educational sessions and share ideas or experiences with friends from the industry, both old and new. To see a list of our confirmed speakers, please visit our Agenda and Speaker bio page.
The Association’s event of the year will conclude the evening – the Better Newspapers Competition Awards Gala!
