Two weeks ago the Texas Press Association asked our members an uncomfortable question: Are public notices important to your newspaper’s survival?

It’s time to register for the 2021 Texas Press Association Convention and Trade Show, set June 10-12 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center.
The event, postponed from January, will feature a wide variety of informative sessions, the Texas Newspaper Hall of Fame 2021 induction ceremony, TPA awards and awards in the Texas Better Newspaper Contest.

Items are now being accepted for the annual silent auction benefiting the Texas Newspaper Foundation.
The auction is a popular feature of the annual TPA Convention and Trade Show, scheduled June 10-12 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center.
