Albright, Ryon compete for secretary position.

SUSAN ALBRIGHT JOINED the Star Tribune in Minneapolis in February as editor of its editorial pages. She has been a member of NCEW since 1986, just after she became editorial page editor of The Arizona Daily Star in Tucson.

Since then, Albright has served NCEW in a number of capacities. She is completing a term on the NCEW board, has served on the Nominating Committee, and was chair of the Outreach Committee for three years. She has written articles for The Masthead and currently is heading a task force exploring the role opinion pages play in affecting newspaper readership.

Earlier in her career, Albright held a variety of editing posts at The Arizona Daily Star, the Louisville Times and the Syracuse Herald-Journal. She has a master's degree from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communications and a bachelor's degree in English from Kent State University.

Albright wants to help NCEW continue to be strong in two major ways: in its role as an advocate for forceful, principled opinion functions in North American newspapers and broadcast media, and in its role as a supportive catalyst for continuous improvement among editorialists. She supports NCEW's current efforts in finding common interests and coordinating its efforts with other journalism organizations.

Sue Ryon is assistant editorial page editor of The Milwaukee Journal. She has worked for the Journal for 17 years, the past nine as an editorial writer specializing in health care and other social issues.

Ryon also has been a copy editor and copy desk chief for the Journal, and worked briefly in Madison, Wis., as a copy editor for The Capital Times.

She holds a bachelor's degree in journalism and English from Indiana University. Her editorials have won numerous awards, both in state and local contests and in national competition sponsored by the Education Writers Association.

A member of NCEW since 1986, Ryon is completing her third year as editor of The Masthead. Prior to that she served as deputy editor. Ryon also has chaired the Nominating Committee and been a member of the Minority Affairs Committee.

Much of her work in NCEW has focused on making the organization more inclusive and broadening its range of voices. She would like to see NCEW work even harder to reach out to those opinion writers who feel excluded by traditional journalism organizations even as it strives to become ever more relevant to its longtime, devoted members.
