The program is part of ONA's Parachute Training Initiative, funded by the Gannett Foundation.
The date and location will be announced soon. Meanwhile, ONA is inviting people who might be interested in the training to take a short, online survey to identify what training is needed in this land of formerly employed journalists.
I did the survey - and discovered some great reminders of the digital skills I have acquired over the years. Another question reminded me I need to revise my business plan, especially the five-year part. An offer to help ONA returned a confidence-building reply from a woman I met last year while stuffing bags, checking in conference and job fair attendees, and opportunity-solving at ONA's annual conference in Washington DC. If the date is right, perhaps you will see me at this FREE event.
