The 12th annual Klein Camp is going virtual in 2020— with the requisite format change to keep things interesting. Thanks, pandemic.
Informed by a survey of past unconference attendees, we’ve taken attendee feedback to shape our programming. You helped us select five big issues confronting newsrooms. We’ll kickoff each topic with venerated industry leaders, with ample engagement and conversation among all of you.
