“One thing all ombudsmen share: a powerful commitment to making journalism better by letting the public inside the process of information gathering, editing and distribution. There can be no finer goal” – Jeffrey Dvorkin, “The Modern News Ombudsman: A User’s Guide”


THE ONO CONFERENCE

The ONO Conference planned for COPENHAGEN on May 17-20, 2020 has been POSTPONED due to health and travel concerns associated with the COVID-19 coronavirus. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

The ONO Board is hoping to be able to reschedule the conference later in the year, and we have set aside a tentative date of September 20 to 23 in Copenhagen. However this will be subject to conditions at the time, and we will keep all members informed during the course of the year.
