NABJ Executive Director Sharon Toomer Resigns

Washington, D.C. (June 22, 2018) -- The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) board of directors on Monday accepted the resignation of Executive Director Sharon Toomer. 
The NABJ board, in a joint statement, said: "We thank Ms. Toomer for her contributions and wish her much success in her future endeavors.”
By the NABJ convention, the board will provide an update regarding the recruitment of a new executive director to lead the NABJ into the future.
Last month, longtime NABJ member Drew Berry of Drew Berry & Associates LLC was hired to assist with convention planning and will also work on national office operations. Berry is a former television executive and has previously served as NABJ's interim executive director.
