I believe in continuity and finishing assignments that you have been given. And because of that, I believe my work is not yet done as an NABJ Board Member. We are just now being able to see the fruit of our labor of advocating and pushing for increased programming for Media-Related Members at our annual Convention and throughout the year. With three years of Board membership under my belt, I am ready to continue working tirelessly identifying new sponsors, supporters, and members on behalf of the 400+ NABJ Media Related members. I look forward to continuing to serve you.
