On January 27-28, 2017, six staff members of The Cavalier Daily traveled to represent the paper at the Yale Annual Conference on College Newspapers. The Cavalier Daily Alumni Association financed this trip.
The staffers chosen to attend included Editor-in-Chief Mike Reingold, Managing Editor Tim Dodson, Operations Manager Danielle Dacanay, News Editor Anna Higgins, Focus Editor Hannah Hall and Engineering Manager Leo Dominguez.
Following the conference, the staffers agreed to a list of projects they intend to pursue. Such ideas include looking into Board of Visitors donations to governors and to the University as a Focus piece, using professional cameras for Facebook Live coverage and integrating video and social media into reporting across sections.
The CDAA would like to thank Cav Daily EIC Mike Reingold for providing this information.
