PENSACOLA, Fla. – Lynne Lance is the new executive director of the National Newspaper Association, the organization announced in this month’s Pub Aux.
Lance previously served as chief operating officer of NNA while it was managed by the Illinois Press Association. At the start of the new year, Lynne Lance Association Management took over operation of the NNA headquarters.
Before joining NNA in January 2016, Lance served as director of member relations for IPA.
“NNA has benefited from the solid expertise of newspaper people during our term with IPA, said NNA President Andrew Johnson, publisher of the (Mayville) Dodge County Pionier, Kewaskum Statesman and Campbellsport News, and past president of the WNA Foundation and WNA Board of Directors.
“We see this shift to LLAM’s operation as a terrific opportunity to hone the operational side of our association and to capture the depth of experience that Lynne has brought to us. She has been the ‘face’ of NNA in so many ways these past three years. We know our members trust her dedication to serving their needs.
