The National Newspaper Association has engaged Lynne Lance Association Management (LLAM) to operate its headquarters after Jan. 1, 2019. NNA is an organization of 2,400 members representing community newspapers around the country.
Lance previously served as NNA’s chief operating officer during its management by Illinois Press Association. NNA’s management relationship with IPA ends December 31.
“NNA has benefitted from the solid expertise of newspaper people during our term with IPA,” NNA President Andrew Johnson, publisher of the Dodge County Pionier (Wisconsin), said. “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 this past three years. We know our members trust her dedication to serving their needs.”
NNA’s headquarters moved to IPA in Springfield, Illinois, in 2015 after a period with split office locations in Columbia, Missouri, and Falls Church, Virginia. It has maintained a public policy office in the Washington area since 2001, when it began a new era of contract management.
