As your next NABJ president, I pledge to:
1) Return NABJ to solid financial ground anchored by an industry-recognized strategic plan,
2) Run an innovative Media Institute that attracts new fundraising and support, and
3) Ignite the association’s advocacy efforts.
I’m the only candidate who has the experience and expertise to lead our great association. I’ve served 12 consecutive years at the NABJ national and chapter level, including four years as chapter president, with a track record for fundraising success. From NABJ Baby to industry leader, I’m best positioned to bring credibility to NABJ and advocate for you.
