CNPA and Column: Public-notice website is changing

UnnamedCNPA Members whose public notices are posted to will need to steer their postings to a new public-notice platform being developed with Column.

All adjudicated CNPA Members should encourage their legal-notice staff to learn about this change now.

As we announced last month, CNPA Members will soon have access to public notice software that they can deploy to reduce costs, improve margins and modernize customer experiences. The new software will make it easier for local governments, legal services and businesses to place notices and for papers to manage the placement process.

The program also provides for a new statewide public notice platform, which will be available this summer. Please ensure that your staff members who handle public notice are informed.

“We are intent on finding ways to help CNPA members adapt to and benefit from modern technology,” said CNPA President and CEO Charles Ford Champion II. “Column adheres to that strategy. It is the most cost-efficient and customer-centric public notice platform on the market. It transforms notice operations for publications of any format and distribution. It’s the perfect fit for our diverse membership population.”
