Related Experience

Greg has exhibited leadership in NABJ with a proven track record of success. As the Finance Chair the past four years, he has worked to put NABJ’s financial house in order. He spearheaded the change in the way we do business, and NABJ is in better shape for it. He also served as NABJ’s 19th President. He has served as a two-term National Treasurer and Secretary, a Chapter President in New Orleans and Boston, co-founder of the Young Black Journalists Task Force, former Chair of Student Education and Enrichment Development (S.E.E.D), and the longest-serving chair of NABJ’s Sports Task Force.


I have a proven track record as an effective leader who constantly pushes for our organization to be fiscally responsible, transparent in governance, responsive to the membership and a visible advocate for black journalists. I will continue this commitment as your President. I am the candidate best equipped to tackle the challenges facing NABJ from a changing membership to the need to continue fiscal growth. My record demonstrates that I can lead NABJ as it transitions into the next stage of its storied history. I look forward to serving you again and taking NABJ to the next level.
