NABJ Members and Friends:

It is with regret that I announce the resignation of NABJ executive director Maurice Foster. He submitted his resignation to the Board of Directors on Friday.

Over the past three years, Maurice's management has yielded strong results for NABJ. His guidance has been invaluable to the organizationhelping NABJ regain financial stability, generate record-high annual convention revenues and expand programming for members.

Maurice used his experience as an association leader to produce significant cost savings. He reduced expenses without compromising services or passing on higher fees to members. In 2013, for example, every program or event yielded a profit, while spending declined. NABJ ended the year with a surplus of $228,000, more than $200,000 above our projection.

We will miss Maurice's depth of expertise, tireless work ethic and his passionate commitment to advancing the careers of African-American journalists. His last day is January 21, 2014.

The Board's executive committee will begin a search for a new executive director. In the meantime, Darryl R. Matthews, Sr. has accepted an appointment as NABJ’s interim executive director. Darryl is an experienced association executive, who most recently served as executive director of the National Medical Association.

As we welcome Darryl, please join the Board in wishing all the best to Maurice in his future pursuits.
