Long Island Business News has named Fair Media Council CEO and Executive Director Jaci Clement as one of 2021’s most powerful Long Islanders. The announcement was made at the end of July.
According to LIBN, “This year, more than any other, required true leaders to support the struggling communities of Long Island, powerful leaders unafraid of facing down a world fraught with peril and uncertainty, problem solvers, innovators, doers.”
“It’s an exceptional honor, especially when you look at the scope and range of the incredible leaders named by Long Island Business News,” said Jaci Clement. “It’s especially gratifying to be recognized after this past year of dealing with the pandemic, pivoting our programming and simply dealing with so many uncertainties.”
