MIA Director #2: Joyce Sullivan
If you are looking for Joyce Sullivan, don't bother looking at the Florida Pennysaver. The long-time board member and past president of the Community Papers of Florida (CPF) has retired.

Sullivan has served the CPF board since 1998, and served terms as secretary and president.

Now you might find Joyce working in her yard. A master gardener, her hobbies include gardening, specifically orchids. You also might find her on the road - rumors have it that she may conduct some audits for Circulation Verification Council (CVC).

Before retirement she was employed with the Palm Beach Newspapers as a commercial print/preprint manager, regional sales manager and agency manger. She was later transferred to the Florida Pennysaver, where she was promoted to general manager. She later helped initiate LaPalma, a successful Hispanic weekly in Palm Beach.

Sullivan has been involved in many community projects. She served as a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce board member, on the Women's Membership Committee, Women's Chamber, Leadership Palm Beach County (Youth Committee), and as a board member of Hispanic Human Resources, the Pathfinder Board of Directors and United Way.

Rumors from her staff have it that Joyce retired because she got wind that the La Palma staff called her "mamacita." Or that she got tired of being called "Hot Stuff" (she collects salsa bottles) by all the men in the office. Or she found out Benjamin Franklin didn't really say "A Pennysaver is a Penny Earned."

As the current past president, Sullivan will complete her term on the board until 2010. We look forward to visiting with her at future conferences.
