The non-profit NAHP. Inc is under the new leadership of President Fanny Miller from El Latino in San Diego. "Mr. Sueiro's hiring is part of a complete upgrade of the organization. We are a new team with greater energy and focus. This year promises to be a banner year for our association. Our Convention in Las Vegas, the Hispanic News Service and a new readership study will highlight the progress we are making."
NAHP Media LLC has been re-established as a media corporation dedicated to generating advertisement for the members of the association. David Cortinas, Publisher of La Voz Hispanic Newspaper, is the new Chair of the Board of the NAHP Media LLC. and Vice President of Corporate Sales for the NAHP Inc.
Jose Sueiro is a well-known, veteran publisher in the Washington DC area as well as a non-profit management and public relations specialist. As Publisher of El Latino Newspaper in Washington DC he was one of the founding members of the NAHP and has held various positions at the organization in the past. Presently he is the Managing Director of Metro DC Hispanic Contractors Association. He publishes a blog titled Metrodiversity.com.
President Fanny Miller and Chairman of the NAHP Media Mr. Cortinas have energized the organization and promise to 'bring it into the 21st century' with ambitious plans for renovation and renewal. The emphasis will be to grow membership, create new partnerships, generate greater advertising revenues and increase the professionalization within the industry. Membership in the organization has increased to its highest numbers in a decade. The organization will celebrate its 38th Annual Convention at the Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas from October 24-27, 2018 (nahp.org for more details).
"The new NAHP has a solid, stable team of accomplished media professionals running the organization" Sueiro claims. "With a growing membership base, new, young publishers coming into their own and active, aggressive digitalization campaigns across the country, NAHP is primed to make a strong, vital impact on the national scene and among millions of its readers". The NAHP has just begun a Hispanic News Service and plans are in the making for a combined NAHP/NNPA (National Newspaper Publishers Assoc.) activity for 2019. David Cortinas said; “I’m excited in having Jose Sueiro as the new Executive Director at the National Press Club he will bring knowledge and experience for the NAHP and bridge the NAHP with organizations in Washington D.C.”
According to Kirk Whisler, who served as founding president of the NAHP 36 years ago, membership in the NAHP is at a ten year high because of growth of local Hispanic publications across the USA, and because of the rapid expansion of Latinos on the digital side of media.
