Inland Press Association Names Interim Executive Director.
Inland Press Association's executive committee on Friday appointed Catherine L. Scott, the association's director of operations for the past four years, as interim executive director to work alongside longtime Executive Director Ray Carlsen, who is retiring Oct. 31.
Scott's appointment is effective July 1, which Inland said would allow for "an orderly transfer of responsibility by the time of the association's 124th annual meeting, Oct. 25-27." Inland President Doug Franklin, executive vice president of Cox Newspapers, Atlanta, Ga., and publisher of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, said the interim move would allow the association to maintain its high standards of service to newspaper companies while retaining the ability to react constructively during a period of industry transition.
Scott was the unanimous choice of the executive committee, he said.
Scott joined Inland in 2001 as office manager, and has served as finance manager for the association and its foundation as well as supervising major association services, evaluating program offerings and assisting with annual conferences and other programs. Carlsen has served as Inland's executive director since 1986 and led the association during a period of substantial growth in both services and membership.
Inland is a non-profit association of U.S., Canadian and Bermudan newspapers, founded in 1885.
