The NARM board of directors has appointed Jim Donio as president of the trade group. Donio has been acting president since March, following the departure of former president Pam Horovitz in mid-2003.

Donio joined NARM in 1988 as director of creative services. He then held various communications posts before being promoted to executive VP in 2000.

“Since Jim was appointed acting president, NARM has made progress against a number of key priorities identified by the board," says chairman of the board Glen Ward. "There has been a significant increase in membership, and Jim had overall responsibility for one of NARM’s most highly rated conventions in years. What is more, Jim’s long tenure, extensive experience and dedication to the association has been of tremendous benefit.”
