I joined NABJ in 2001 as a student member and transferred to full membership in 2004. I have benefited greatly from NABJ’s resources. I have gained valuable NABJ board experience in my two terms as Region 1 director and I want to make the transition to NABJ's executive board, where I can help the organization become more effective in communicating and being transparent with the membership on NABJ's activities.
