As the news industry changes, how can local news and information survive and thrive? What does real sustainability look like -- and how can we help each other get there?

We will explore those questions and much more at Sustain Local 2016, the third national conference hosted by the Center for Cooperative Media. The conference will kick off with a welcome reception, keynote presentation, and networking event on Thursday, Oct. 6. A full day of Sustain Local 2016 panels and presentations will take place will take place on Friday, Oct. 7, and will be held at the University Hall Conference Center at Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J. 

Sustain Local will tackle the major business and organizational challenges facing local news publishers across the country. Local news entrepreneurs and newspaper, television and radio journalists will join with other business, advertising, and academic leaders for panels, workshops and small group discussions about generating the kind of revenue needed to support the work of local journalism, with a special emphasis on creative business models, sales and membership strategies, events development and technologies that have either shown results or are currently in experimentation.
