National Working Conference (MUKERNAS) XII The Indonesian Student Press Association (PPMI) is an annual agenda carried out by all members of the student press who are members of PPMI. This year, the agenda was held on 23-26 November 2018 and took place at the Family Hotel. On November 23, 2018, it began with registration for MUKERNAS participants, located at Campus I of IAIN Ponorogo. The first day of this activity was quite conducive even though it was a little late than the scheduled time. Then all participants and organizers departed together towards Ngebel Lake with an interval of approximately one hour. In the afternoon, when I arrived at the location, all participants took breaks, prayers and ate together while waiting for the next agenda. In the evening, a book review was carried out under the title “My Religion Is Journalism”.
On November 24, 2018, participants were spoiled by Reog Ponorogo dances and various other cultures. The next agenda is the presentation of journalism material from PPMI and PPMI alumni. In the evening, all participants entered the initial phase of the core agenda of MUKERNAS, namely the discussion of the order and the election of the presidium which lasted quite hot so that it took until midnight.
Sunday, November 25, 2018 is the peak series of MUKERNAS. Time that is not in accordance with the schedule is a separate obstacle, but it did not dampen the enthusiasm of the participants. The things discussed are the PPMI work program, exposure to conditions from each city, and press conditions in Indonesia.
The last day, 26 November 2018, all participants from the MUKERNAS activity prepared to return to their hometown. At 10:00 WIB, the participants were accommodated by the PPMI committee to immediately leave the Family Hotel and head to the Dolopo terminal.
The hardship that was hampered also gave its own impact for the Malang City delegation. This has an impact on changes in accommodation both departure and return. As long as the activity took place, changes in rundown also resulted in the activity schedule getting back and forth from the schedule that had been determined. From the obstacles that have occurred, it is expected that in the next activity the committee will provide clarity on accommodation so that there will be no misunderstanding from the participants or the committee.
