JOIN NSPA FOR A SPECIAL EVENT NEXT TUESDAY, MAY 1:
NSPA will host a live chat on CoverItLive, “Inspiration from the Online Pacemakers,” from 6-7 p.m. CDT with Lauren Rabaino, online producer for The Seattle Times, and Logan Aimone, NSPA executive director. Rabaino worked on the staff of Pacemaker-winning websites in high school and college, so she’s in a perfect position to look at this year’s Pacemakers and showcase the highlights. She’ll share her unique perspective and give tips to improve any news website.

Please also invite your staff, especially Web editors, to participate. Or, participate as a group and project the screen for the whole staff to see.
