Pa. Newspaper Association President To Retire

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The president and chief executive officer of the Pennsylvania Newspaper Association has announced his retirement after more than two decades of service.

Tim Williams will be stepping down at the end of the year but will provide consulting and other services, according to the announcement at the association’s convention late last month. Senior vice president Teri Henning has been chosen as the next president.

During his 22-year tenure, Williams started and oversaw the growth of Mid-Atlantic Newspaper Services, the association’s for-profit ad placement service. Also started under his direction were PennSCAN, the statewide classified ad network, Pennsylvania NewsLink, a statewide press release service, and The Affordable 2x2 Network.

Also completed under his tenure was the association’s three-story headquarters in Harrisburg, which was dedicated in May 1999.
