Trust and Team.

RTDNA22 is a one-of-a-kind news-leadership retreat designed with you in mind. It’s all about Trust and Team in 2022, and we’re heading to Indianapolis to give you the tools you’ll need in the driver’s seat. Join us for collaborative sessions where we examine how you can help build trust in your communities — things you can do in your newsroom now and ways to improve your outreach and better connect with your audience. And let us help you build a better team, with tools to help recruitment and retention efforts, keep your team safe in the field, assist that leader behind the wheel with self-care techniques and more.

Whether you are a news manager with decades of experience or an early career journalist, let us help refresh your mind, restore your wellbeing, rekindle your creativity and reconnect with some of the brightest minds in journalism. RTDNA22 in Indianapolis is a conference Driven By You, and we hope to see you there!

We’ve got:

Collaborative, practical, hands-on training, not panel after panel.

The days of being talked at are done. At RTDNA22, our focus is on training that thrives out of conversations, shared experiences, and real-world exercises that transcend the typical conference lecture room. We’re making learning personal and practical, and we can’t wait to share our lineup of incredible training topics with you.

Inspiration, not lectures.

If you’re feeling a little caught up in the grind, or if you are bored to death by another Zoom call, we’ve got the perfect mix for you. Be inspired with keynotes that focus on you as a leader — and as a human. Let’s talk about keeping promises, about building and supporting your team, about doing good, not just looking good. Take a breath and reconnect (in person!) with peers at some of Indianapolis’ most inspiring spaces.

Connection, not anonymous masses.

We’re bringing together leaders at RTDNA22. And not just any leaders — the leaders who want to invest in themselves and their team, who come with an open mind and a hunger for learning. We’ve tossed out the massive conference center and the endless rows of chairs in favor of a more intimate group ready to dive in headfirst. We guarantee you’ll leave Indianapolis with new ideas, new peers and new friends. After all, we’re better together.

Giving back to the local community, not conference room isolation.

If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that community is everything, and we’ve set out with the goal of leaving our host conference city a little better than when we found it. At RTDNA22, we’re partnering with local vendors and artists to bring Indianapolis to you. We want to leave a positive footprint on the city by sharing some of its most special elements with you and give back what we can in return.
