Committee Members

Interested in helping the industry move forward? The LPA seeks volunteers to join the newly formed Next Steps Committee.

The committee's initial goal is to help craft concreate, achievable steps for members to move forward in today's disrupted and changing media environment. To that end, the committee needs members from all sizes and types of publications to join, ensuring their voices are heard in the process.

Join current board members who are on the committee, which includes:

  • Renette Hall, Louisiana Weekly
  • David Specht, Minden Press-Herald 
  • And McHugh David, Livingston Parish News

The committee will initially meet monthly and then move to quarterly.
