CENTRAL STATES CIRCULATION MANAGERS ASSOCIATION

President's Letter

It is a privilege serve this year as the CSCMA president. As a long time member, I know CSCMA has a strong tradition and a solid foundation. We will work hard this year to ensure this continues. Our number one priority is still to serve our members.

As the newspaper industry changes, we understand we need to change with it. Over the last couple years we have created a strong relationship with the Midwest Circulation Management Association (MCMA) and Media 360 Alliance. Because of this partnership, the Mega Summit has been a huge success. Attendance has increased every year and the presenters have been topnotch. We will continue to support Media 360 Alliance and the Mega Summit. This yearís Mega Summit is scheduled for April 17-18, 2016 in St. Louis, MO.

Our board obligations and responsibilities will continue to evolve so we can best provide for our members. The 2015-2016 board has a remarkable amount of experience and knowledge. Joining us this year are Paul Hart and Robert Robertson. Paul, from HNE Media, will serve as the Training Chair. Robert, from the Herald-Whig, will serve as the Conference Secretary. We are excited to have them join the board. Again, Iím excited to be the CSCMA President. Sharing ideas, driving sales, readership, and leveraging cost efficiencies remains a key part of our mission. Iím excited and optimistic about our future and welcome your feedback, ideas, and expectations for CSCMA.

Warm Regards,

Mike McClure

MARY ELLEN JOHNSON - Friday - November 13, 2015 - 03:19 PM

 

It is with sadness that the CSCMA Board of Directors announces the passing of one of our longtime board members, Mary Ellen Johnson, on Wednesday, November 11, 2015.  She was known by many as the ‘Director of First Impressions’ and will always be remembered by those fortunate enough to know her.  The following column was originally published when Mary Ellen officially retired from CSCMA.  We are republishing it today in remembrance of her contributions and friendship to so many in the newspaper industry.
