The annual PBAA member meeting was held on June 11, 2014 at the Retail Marketplace Conference in Virginia. At that time, the results of the election for three board seats were announced by PBAA Associate Director Jose Cancio and Lisa Scott, Executive Director. Allison Fleming (Hearst Magazines), John MacKethan (National Geographic) and Bruce Sherbow (Penny Publications) were elected to the board for 2 year terms 2014 - 2016. PBAA President Jay Annis congratulated them all on their election and looked forward to working with Fleming and MacKethan, who are new to the board this year. Annis stated “…as I am sure you know we are trying to elevate the relevance of PBAA within the industry, a goal which I think would benefit the entire newsstand channel. I’m sure you will be great resources as we strive towards achieving that goal.” Continuing their terms as PBAA board members are Dave Alleger (Clark Distribution Systems, Inc.), Bob Bedor (Time Inc. Retail), and Will Michalopoulos (Hearst Magazines). Jay Annis (The Taunton Press) continues his term as PBAA President and maintains his seat on the board. Additional PBAA officers and board chair will be appointed by the board at their July meeting. The PBAA staff and board wish to thank our outgoing board members Irwin Billman and Rich Alleger, who have selflessly devoted years to our association and the greater newsstand industry. They will continue their relationships with PBAA in a board-advisory capacity. In particular, Billman has served as an executive of PBAA for several decades and has been instrumental in its development and growth as “the voice of the newsstand industry.”
