BTL's Horowitz on exec board

SAN FRANCISCO - The National Gay Newspaper Guild of the United States announced results of officer elections, electing five officers, each for two-year terms, at its annual meeting held in San Francisco on April 1, 2006.

Sue O'Connell of Bay Windows in Boston was elected President. Michael Portantino of the Gay and Lesbian Times in San Diego was elected Vice President. Robert Moore of the Dallas Voice in Dallas was elected Treasurer. Susan Horowitz of Between The Lines in Michigan was elected Secretary. Tracy Baim of the Windy City Times in Chicago and Mike Kitchens of the Southern Voice in Atlanta were elected Officers At Large.

"It's really exciting to part of the executive committee," said Horowitz. "I believe that a strong, thriving NGNG will help insure the future growth of LGBT publications across the country and serve LGBT readers."

"As the choices for GLBT media expand," said president O'Connell, "the National Gay Newspaper Guild remains the best choice to find the premier publications serving the GLBT reader and consumer."

The Express of South Florida was voted in as a new member of the Guild, joining Bay Area Reporter of San Francisco, Bay Windows of Boston, Between The Lines, Dallas Voice of Dallas, Frontiers of Los Angeles, Gay and Lesbian Times of San Diego, Houston Voice of Houston, New York Blade of New York, Philadelphia Gay News of Philadelphia, Southern Voice of Atlanta, Washington Blade of Washington D.C., and Windy City Times of Chicago.
