Nikki Moore takes HelpLine calls

CNPA's legal HelpLine informs key personnel at member newspapers on such topics as access to public meetings and records, school access, publisher liability for certain types of advertising, libel and workplace issues. Many members say the money the HelpLine saves them in legal costs is alone worth the cost of CNPA membership.

Staff also leads low-cost and no-cost legal workshops that focus on libel, privacy, the California Public Records Act and the Ralph M. Brown Act.
