Seeking to cut costs, the National Newspaper Association (NNA) is moving its headquarters from the high-rent Washington area.
The group’s board met Friday to begin choosing from among four proposals by potential host organizations that are mostly in the Midwest, said interim CEO Tonda Rush. NNA will be leaving Arlington, Va., a suburb, Rush said.
NNA, with about 3,400 member newspapers, has nine full-time employees, down from 20 several years ago. Three NNA workers may stay in Arlington as employees of American PressWorks, a management company where Rush is a partner. Others aren’t sure whether they’ll be offered a transfer.
