The last few years have seen a huge proliferation of user generated content (UGC) in newsrooms. But what is next?

What steps can newsrooms take to go from training staff on how to verify content to using UGCto really find the stories and voices that aren't being covered? How can journalists and sites prevent errors? Who owns the data uncovered by UGC and how is it being preserved?

Join the Online News Association's New York group at the NYC Bureau of the Associated Press on Tuesday, February 18th for a conversation with five experts in different areas of UGC and crowdsourcing to tackle these questions and others. We hope you will join us!
