The National Newspaper Association (NNA) is a Columbia, Missouri based non-profit newspaper trade association founded in 1885.[2][3] The organization has over 2,300 members, making it the largest newspaper trade association in the United States.[4] The organization has two major offices, one in Columbia, Missouri, and the other in Falls Church, Virginia.[5]

History[edit]

The National Newspaper Association was founded by Benjamin Briggs Herbert on February 19, 1885, as the National Editorial Association (NEA) in New Orleans, Louisiana.[1][6][7] The NEA's constitution was ratified after a meeting in 1886 and Benjamin Briggs Herbert was elected president of the organization.[8][9] In 1891, Edwin William Stephens became the sixth president of National Editorial Association after a discussion at the organization's seventh annual convention.[9][10][11] The National Editorial Association changed its name to the National Newspaper Association after a Dallas, Texas meeting in 1964.[12]

Conventions[edit]

Since the organization's founding, the National Newspaper Association has held an annual news convention.[13][14] At the conventions, newspaper editors meet and discuss various publishing related topics.[15][16] An informal convention had taken place in New Orleans after the organization's founding.[17] The organization's first formal convention took place on February 23, 1886 in Cincinnati, Ohio.[18][19]
