One of the best things of the Native Media Conference is bringing together media makers that serve Indian Country. This year, Native Public Media and the Native American Journalist Association will host a joint conference with training, education, engagement and celebration.
NAJA and NPM are two of the most prominent Native media organizations in the United States and are co-hosting the Native Media Conference with a special joint focus on the latest innovations in the media industry and news developments in Indian Country.
The goals of the Native Media Conference are to expand the capacity and service of Native public radio and media makers by enabling its leaders to network and learn from each other; and to deliver training and information that is especially pertinent to the growth and sustainability of Native media serving Indian Country.
The community benefit of the Native Media Conference is for Native media makers to prosper and grow as a system; it is an opportunity for Native station managers to address compliance challenges unique to Native America; and celebrate the success of Native Journalists and Tribal stations in serving Native American audiences. By bringing together journalists and broadcasters, both NPM and NAJA know it will double their impact in service and reach.
