Capital & Main is digital applicant

Capital & Main has applied to be a CNPA Digital News member. Danny Feingold is publisher of the Los Angeles-based founded in 2013.

Its website bills it as “an award-winning nonprofit publication that reports from California on the most pressing economic, environmental and social issues of our time.”

Until confirmation by the CNPA Board of Directors on Jan. 27, Capital & Main is a provisional member of CNPA and is eligible for all the benefits of a Digital News Media member.

CNPA defines “Digital News Media” as an organization that posts news and information of a local character, using digital media that may include the internet, websites, mobile and tablet technology. Online publications can be paid or free news websites or electronic news publications with at least 50 percent local news content, rather than aggregated, copied or reprinted from other sources, with a substantial portion produced by local staff in California.

A CNPA Board-approved proposal to amend the bylaws to allow Digital News Media members full voting rights and board service will be presented to a digital and live vote by Active members of the association at the Annual Business Meeting on Jan. 28. Key contacts at Active Member companies received a detailed email on Monday, Dec. 23, regarding the proposal.
