BENSON, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota publisher is the new president of the National Newspaper Association.

Reed Anfinson of the Swift County Monitor-News became president of the 2,300-member organization at its 126th annual convention and trade show Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M.

Anfinson had served the past year as NNA vice president. He succeeds Elizabeth K. Parker, co-publisher and executive editor for Recorder Community Newspapers Inc. in Stirling, N.J.

In addition to publishing and editing the Monitor-News, Anfinson is a partner in Quinco Press Inc., a central printing plant in Lowry that prints nearly 30 publications.

Anfinson served as president of the Minnesota Newspaper Association in 1999. Last year the Minnesota Coalition on Government Information awarded Anfinson its John R. Finnegan Freedom of Information Award.
