Media delegates to the YMCA Youth Conference of National Affairs produce The Blue Ridge Journal blog along with a newspaper, a facebook page (The Blue Ridge Journal), a Twitter account (@BRJCONA) and a You Tube channel (conamedia).  For one week every summer at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, N.C., young people from throughout the United States debate national and international topics. The Conference on National Affairs, or CONA, has existed since 1967.
