Mr. Allen is an award-winning public relations expert, best-selling co-author (“Real Mean Cook: Rites, Rituals and Recipes for Living” - Simon and Schuster) and newspaper columnist. He worked as Public Relations Manager for the City of Dallas/Office of Cultural Affairs. He was the Managing Editor at the Dallas Examiner and Business Columnist for the FWBN.  He has executed 2 successful NABJ webinars on Career & Chapter Development and one mentoring program.

Mr. Allen co-chaired NABJ’s Associate Member Task Force, which helped to create and execute the Patricia L. Tobin Media Professional Award as a permanent NABJ imprint. A past NABJ Salute to Excellence for Public Relations-Award recipient, he has powered over 20 workshops/events for NABJ. As Marketing and PR Director, Business Assistance Center, Terry raised over $3 million; produced 42+ business owners; generated $1.8 million in revenue; and garnered five awards in marketing. He serves on several boards/task forces. PR clients include American Airlines, Time, Inc., and Essence. Past history includes serving as a managing editor/columnist for four black newspapers.



If elected to serve as the Media Related Board Representative, I want to usher in a new era of securing transition training for journalists, valuable certifications for NABJ media-related members and creating a $50,000 annual operating endowment for the NABJ’s Media-Related Member Task Force.
