Executive Director Update

Since beginning with MDDC at the start of March, I have jumped in to the organization and have made significant headway on the 90-day plan I shared with the board and publishers at the start of my tenure.

My first initiative was to meet with all of our member papers. To date, I have met with over 75% of our members. These visits have been illuminating and interesting, showcasing the innovative work of members in each of our jurisdictions. I have been asking how MDDC can help members in their businesses and initiatives, as well as enquiring about training and recruitment needs.

Advocacy continued to be an important area, and I have worked with Ellen Valentino on legislation in MD and DE. We have met with industry groups like MML and MACO in MD to open lines of communication and offer expertise in PIA trainings for their constituents. We will continue to meet with elected officials and other important groups in all of our jurisdictions. We also held a legislative advocacy update call in April, one of several we have planned.
