Midterm Essentials: A One-Day Deep Dive on Key Policy Issues

Quest Conference Center in Columbus

The ONMA in partnership with the Ohio Association of Broadcasters and Poynter are presenting a free, in-person workshop for Ohio's editors and journalists on "Midterm Essentials: A One-Day Deep Dive on Key Policy Issues.

The workshop will be held on Tuesday July 26 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. at Quest Conference Center in Columbus.

This fast-paced, expert-led and practical training will help you ask more informed questions and demand more solid answers about five complex issues facing America in the 2022 midterm election cycle:

  • Inflation and the economy
  • Immigration
  • Health care and drug costs
  • Climate change
  • Disinformation

The teaching team, coordinated by the Poynter Institute, includes a top expert on health care who testifies before Congress, a Pulitzer Prize-winning immigration reporter and a climate expert from Climate Central.

These won’t be stale lectures but instead will be tailored to journalists seeking context and clarity on behalf of their communities. More than ever, this training is vital for busy, resource-strapped journalists who might otherwise settle for campaign talking points, allow candidates to talk in rhetorical circles or amplify common falsehoods online.

This non-partisan workshop is produced by Poynter’s senior faculty Al Tompkins who has five decades of journalism experience and is a key instructor for Poynter’s digital literacy program.

Tuition is free, but registration is required. The deadline to apply is July 8, 2022.
