The Oklahoma Press Association is proud to debut its new Web site, which has been nearly a year in the making. From the home page that features winners of the OPA's three monthly contests to a resource section that includes journalism links and other valuable information, the site is geared toward OPA members as well as those who are interested in Oklahoma newspapers.
New features of the web site:
- The homepage now spotlights the latest OPA news and winners of the three monthly contests.
- An Events Calendar below the main menu provides easy access to information about OPA workshops and special events. A second calendar details the meeting schedule for OPA and ONF board and committee meetings.
- A new Resources section includes links to other training sources, reporters' tools and journalism organizations.
- A new media kit for OPS advertisers that want to get their message out to millions of Oklahomans.
We've tried to anticipate some of your questions so we could provide answers about the new site. If you don't find the answer to your question here, please submit it using the comments section below. We'll respond with the answer and probably add it to this list for other members.
How do I report a problem with the site?
E-mail Jennifer Gilliland or Lisa Potts, or call OPA at 405-499-0020 or 1-888-815-2672 (toll-free in Okla.)
How do I find information about ONF workshops?
The Events Calendar provides details about upcoming workshops and events. The calendar is linked on the left side of most pages within the site.
Is there a place to advertise and view employment positions?
Job postings are now available on the Job Line page. Links to Jobs Wanted, Buy/sell/trade and Press Time Available are also linked at Job Line. To post an employment opening click on "Place Job Listing," then complete and submit the online form. Employment listings must now be approved by OPA staff before being posted on the web site. Approvals will be made within 24 hours or on the next business day.
Take a few minutes to acquaint yourself with the new site, which now includes a site-wide search feature. With its added content and user-friendly menus, the new Web site will serve as a useful tool for Oklahoma newspaper employees. Check back often for new content.
