Jim Busis, CEO and publisher of the Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle, has been appointed to the executive committee of the American Jewish Press Association. His tenure will begin next month.
The AJPA, founded in 1944, is a nonprofit professional association for the Jewish press in North America. Its mission is “to enhance the status of American Jewish journalism and to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and cooperative activities among the American Jewish press,” according to its website.
“For decades, the AJPA has played a critical role in supporting Jewish journalism in North America,” Busis said. “And at this point, as Jewish journalism faces its most serious challenge due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I’m very pleased to take on a larger role within the organization as it helps Jewish publications navigate their way through the crisis.” PJC
