RTNDA Canada announced Friday that it is changing its name to include the word “digital.” The association acronym previously stood for for Radio-Television News Directors Association. As a result of a vote at the association's annual general meeting at the national conference in Halifax, N.S., the organization has changed its name to Radio-Television Digital News Association - The Association of Electronic Journalists. "Flipping those two letters, from 'News Directors' to 'Digital News' makes us more inclusive," association president Andy LeBlanc said in a release. "Whether we are the news director, a reporter, a student, or an educator, we are all striving to achieve the same outcome: superb electronic journalism. Digital technology means we are no longer limited to radio and television—electronic journalists are also online." The association also amended articles in its constitution to make all practising electronic journalists voting members. Previously, only news directors and news managers could vote. The association also amended its code of ethics to reflect changes in technology, changing use of the term "broadcast" to "electronic," among other modifications, a release said. The RTNDA's code of ethics has been adopted by the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council as an industry standard to measure fairness and accuracy in broadcasting.
