NAMPA Proves Virtual Conventions Work


The North American Mature Publishers Association (NAMPA) held its annual convention via Zoom meetings Oct. 6-7. NAMPA members publish more than 95 publications in the United States and Canada with a combined circulation of more than 4 million. Of these member publications, 48 were represented at the virtual exchange of ideas between senior and boomer publishing leaders.

With Family Features as the prime sponsor of the event, Media Manager Cindy Long observed and participated in the conference.

Organized by Executive Director Gary Calligas, there were six separate virtual meetings during the two-day period attended by an impressive group of newspaper and magazine publishers and editors. Even though there were a lot of attendees, the meetings were structured to make it convenient to contribute or ask questions of the presenters or other attendees.
