The NGPA speaks highly of their new Executive Director.

"Justin was the standout candidate for this critical role due to his innate understanding of what NGPA stands for—we are a family dedicated to the vision of being equal authentic and respected everywhere. Justin has been a long-time member of NGPA and knows the organization inside and out. He understands that the success of NGPA is tied to our diverse members, and his dedication, vision, and charisma make him the ideal candidate to lead our family into the future."
