IV. ANA PRODUCTION TRANSPARENCY UPDATE (1:30 – 2:00PM)
In the fall 2016 ANA convened a task force that examined transparency issues in production. The process to examine these issues was as follows: identify consultants/outside resources who have a perspective on the issue; have each consultant share their perspective with the Production Transparency Task Force; recap the key learnings and decide on a course of action, if warranted. In August 2017 ANA released their Production Transparency report. This session will highlight the findings and recommendations found within that report.

Speaker:
Gregory Wright, Director, Conferences and Committees – ANA
