2024 Digital Publishing Workshop

The 7th annual Digital Publishing Workshop -- presented by the Air Force Public Web office of the Air Force Public Affairs Agency -- takes place Aug. 8 and 9, 2024.

This year’s event takes place via Microsoft Teams and is intended for junior to mid-level enlisted Public Affairs personnel serving in the Department of the Air Force; however, all Dept. of Defense employees are invited to attend, since the content is relevant to PA units across the Services.

Attendees are encouraged to attend some or all sessions – feel free to log in and out as needed, just remember to turn off your camera and microphone to minimize distractions.

Session recordings and presenters’ slides will be uploaded to the Public Affairs SharePoint site (CAC-enabled) within one week after the event.

If you have any questions, please contact us using the information below.

We look forward to seeing you at the 2024 Digital Publishing Workshop!
