(page and site index updated 12/30/2016 JM)

During conversion of the American Society of News Editors web site to be fully "mobile-responsive," ASNE added Opinion Writing as a tab on the top navigation bar.
That fulfills one priority item in the AOJ-ASNE merger agreement.
The tab opens a page that will become a gateway to extensive material on this important field. It will have both AOJ-NCEW publications such as Masthead and new content developing and sharing the expertise of both organizations' current members. Initially, the content is an adaptation of a joint Q&A about the merger.
