We are intensely focused on helping local media companies discover new and sustainable business models.
LMA assists local media companies with the digital transition via cutting-edge programs, conferences, webinars, research & more. The Local Media Foundation hosts a week-long Innovation Mission each year with senior executives from all over North America visiting companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Plug & Play, Deseret Digital, YP.com, McClatchy, Hearst, Digital First Media & more. The association also issues dozens of industry reports each year focusing on best practices, case studies, emerging trends and sustainable business models. The LMA staff brings considerable expertise on the newspaper and digital side of the business (most were former top executives in the industry).
Understanding the tremendous need for affordable sales & digital training, LMA launched a new business unit dedicated to training.
