In 2019, Chappell was instrumental in updating the organization’s social and digital presence, including launching an online membership management portal, moving official board communications to a digital collaboration service, and developing a newsletter publishing platform. These efforts have transformed how the 45-year old organization engages with and serves its membership base. An 8-year veteran of the media industry, he’s worked as a social media editor at The Washington Post, joined the Philadelphia Inquirer as an audience engagement editor, then moved to the Free Press, a media policy nonprofit focused on equitable access for broadband and internet, the break up of media conglomerates, equity and reparations in media and the defense against government surveillance.
