The coup is complete. Newspaper guys rule OWAA. Four of the last five presidents served, or are serving, long careers in the newspaper industry. And the reign will continue with the current vice president also coming from the print journalism world.
OWAA celebrates its 90th birthday next year. With such a big birthday looming (celebration preparations are in the works now), and as my year serving as your president winds down, it’s only natural to look back not only over the last year, but also over OWAA’s history.
OWAA is a special organization. Like other professional trade groups, we’re a collection of colleagues who go to conferences to network, gather information vital to our work and improve our craft.
