Editor's note

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” 
-- Winston S. Churchill. 

I've had the great fortune to be involved with the Coalition since it was founded in 1998, and work as executive director since 2008. But, now it's time for me to challenge my limits - by taking a different path.

On our March call, I informed the Board that this would be my final year as executive director, working through the 2019 Conference. 

The Board plans to set up a search committee to determine what new leadership at this juncture is best for the Coalition, to sustain and advance the association. 

I'm proud of what the News Advertising Coalition has become over the past twenty years and the small part I've played working with so many talented people in the Coalition and our industry. I remain committed to the group and will do my utmost to insure a smooth transition.

Thanks for your support while we work together for the continued viability and success this rare enterprise deserves!
