Pennsylvania Joins Column Partner Program

By Kevin King, Head of Brand & Communications · November 29, 2021

We are delighted to announce the Pennsylvania NewsMedia Association (PNA) as the newest member of the Column Partner Program. The PNA marks the ninth new state association to join our Partner Program in 2021 alone.

"Public notices are an essential component of an informed and engaged citizenry. These notices provide access to the information Pennsylvanians need to be actively involved in the government decision-making that affects their everyday lives," said Brad Simpson, President of PNA. "With Column, our association and members will deliver innovative technology to support public notice now and into the future — starting with an exciting upgrade to, making our website more user-friendly. We are delighted to join Column's Partner Program, alongside many of our association colleagues."

We will be working closely with PNA on making critical improvements to the accessibility of their statewide public notice site as well as adding improved search and alert functionality for the public. We look forward to working with the PNA staff and their entire membership on the upcoming transition.

Column's CEO, Jake Seaton, shared, "We've had such an exciting year of growth for the Partner Program and it is really just the beginning. We are gearing up for the launch of a new product early next year that will equip our partners, like PNA, with some game-changing technology to support their advocacy efforts."

In addition to building a new statewide search site, all PNA members will have the opportunity to adopt Column's enterprise public notice platform. These tools give publishers the technological muscle they need to provide a modern, streamlined experience for their public notice customers. Using our enterprise platform to intake public notice orders also automates the uploading notices to any statewide website for publishers.
