Brandon Benavides, who ran unopposed, is the new national President of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists.
Election results were announced at the end of the NABJ/NAHJ convention in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, August 6.
Here is the complete list of winners who compose the new board of directors:
VP Online: Joe Ruiz
VP of Broadcast: Rolando Arrieta
Financial Officer: Michelle Riddles
Secretary: Nancy Flores
General At-Large Officer: Nathan Olivares-Giles
Academic At-Large Officer: Laura Castaneda
Spanish At-Large Officer: Miguel Rosa
Region 1: Rafael Mejia
Region 2: Geraldine Azócar (Appointed)
Region 3: Erik Reyna
Region 6: Blanca Rios
Region 8: Brian De Los Santos
Nobody ran for VP of Print or Director for regions 4,5, and 7. Those slots remain vacant and will probably require a board appointment.
