Michael P. King was sworn in as the new president of the National Press Photographers Association on Sunday at the conclusion of the 2018 NPPA annual board meeting at Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication in Athens, Georgia.
Carolyn Hall Jensen was also elected vice president, and Andrea Wise was elected secretary. Melissa Lyttle was sworn into the official role of past president of the NPPA.
King had served as NPPA vice president for the past two years. Hall has served as NPPA treasurer and is coming back after a year off of the executive council. Wise served on the NPPA Board of Directors this last year before being elected as secretary. The NPPA treasurer is Kyle Grantham who is halfway through a two-year term.
Because Wise has resigned her board position to take the secretary role, her place will go to Brent Lewis who had the highest number of votes in the recent board elections after the two directors who were elected.
