Two female editorial executives from the regional press have joined the board of the Society of Editors.
Meanwhile Moira Sleight, editor of the Methodist Recorder, has become the organisation’s new treasurer, replacing Sue Ryan of the Daily Mail.
Trinity Mirror regional editorial director Neil Benson – a former SoE president – is stepping down from the board after 11 years.
Unusually no new vice-president has been elected at this stage. It is understood this will happen at a later date.
