"George A. Krimsky (Co-Chair) is the former president and co-founder of the International Center for Journalists, and is currently an international media consultant operating from his home state of Connecticut in the United States. In a career spanning thirty-five years, he has been an editor and correspondent, lecturer, trainer, media critic and author. Mr. Krimsky served sixteen years with the Associated Press, reporting from Los Angeles, New York, the (then) Soviet Union and the Middle East. Following his overseas service, he was appointed head of the Associated Press’s World Services News Department. In 1985, he left active journalism to start the non-profit assistance organization originally known as the Center for Foreign Journalists, outside Washington, DC. In his current occupation, Mr. Krimsky travels the world as a media trainer and consultant. He is the co-author (with John Maxwell Hamilton) of a 1995 book entitled Hold the Press, aimed at explaining the American newspaper industry to a general audience and wrote a handbook for American editors on how to increase international coverage entitled Bringing the World Home. Mr. Krimsky served as a faculty member at Session 329, The Impact of the Media on Politics, Public Policy and World Events, 1995." [1]
