Advocate Solutions Partner

Column launches California and South Dakota sites


This month, we launched statewide public notice websites for the newest members of our Column Partner Program: the California News Publishers Association and the South Dakota Newspaper Association. We're incredibly excited for these sites to improve the utility of public interest information for the people of California and South Dakota through modern, searchable databases, and to support CNPA and SDNA in the future of public notice.

In addition to our enterprise public notice software for publishers, Column offers a free Partner Program for state press associations to support their important public notice advocacy work. To learn more about our Partner Program, check out Editorials, the Column blog — or go explore the California and South Dakota websites.
