Circulation legal webinar April 25

Cal Western Circulation Managers Association (CWCMA) and Northwest International Circulation Executives (NICE), two longstanding organization with members in media companies in 12 western states, are excited to announce the date of their second webinar in a series of three this year. Scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. Pacific on Thursday, April 25, it will address “Legal Updates for Circulation and Consumer Marketing Executives.”

This free webinar is available to members and non-members of these organizations. For more information or to sign up to attend, go here.

Moderated by Troy Niday of Sonoma Media Investments, this informative two-part webinar features Michael Zinser, general counsel of CWCMA; and Amy Lawrence, associate in the Privacy & Data Security Group at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein and Selz. CNPA’s Jim Ewert, originally included, will not take part due to another commitment.

The first hour will focus on consumer disclosure requirements and consumer privacy data protection in light of Europe’s GDPR and a recently passed California state law that is stricter than GDPR. The second hour will cover distribution and independent contractor case studies and court challenges, along with ABC test impact and implications.

NICE President and McClatchy Director of Audience Budgeting Jim Wall stated, “Understanding the implications of recent legal challenges and case studies with media companies and other industries that have the potential to affect us is critical. This webinar will give you a better understanding of those challenges and their results that can impact the decisions we make in audience.”

Troy Niday, president of CWCMA and chief operating officer of Sonoma Media Investments, which publishes The Press Democrat, Sonoma Index-Tribune and Petaluma Argus-Courier, said, “We are excited to be partnering with NICE to provide our colleagues with examples of what others are doing to meet the challenge of staying on top of the legal matters impacting our industry. Every media company needs to prepare itself for stricter consumer privacy and data collection disclosures. This webinar provides a solid overview of what steps you should be taking.”
