I caught up with David
to learn more about his
plans to lead the NLGJA
: I believe that NLGJA

: Well, media company mergers and bottom line driven staff cuts at many major media outlets threaten the traditional sources for NLGJAs members and funders.
: The first two are easy, as I talked about them a lot during the interview process: diversifying and growing the funding for the organization and continuing to build the membership.
: I think there has been tremendous progress on this front since NLGJA
