Local independent news sites form trade group

A group of local independent online news publishers from across the country—including TucsonSentinel.com— agreed to found a trade group while attending a conference in Chicago on Friday

A seven-member steering group, including yours truly, volunteered to flesh out the initial workings of the as-yet undubbed trade association.

We'll be releasing more information as it develops—and adding dozens, if not hundreds more members as we move forward in supporting local news sites.

The release from the organization:

Independent Local Online News Publishers Trade Group Formed

On September 30, 2011, during the Block by Block conference at Loyola University Chicago, 21 local, independent online publishers from across the United States voted to form a trade association.

A steering committee was appointed to further organize the association.

Questions should be directed to Executive Secretary Mike Fourcher at (773) 328-8451 or mike@brownlinemedia.com.
