NAPL President to Teach NYU Graphic Communications Executive Leadership Course
Press release from the issuing company
PARAMUS, N.J., JANUARY 5, 2004 – A new Executive Leadership graduate-level course developed and to be taught by Joseph P. Truncale, president and chief executive officer of the National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL), has been added to the Graphic Communications Management & Technology program at New York University for the Spring 2004 semester.
Gregory S. D’Amico, Ph.D., director of the NYU program and an NAPL Board member, invited Truncale, who had been co-teaching a Human Resources course on Managerial Psychology with him as an NYU adjunct professor, to submit a syllabus for the three-credit course. The proposal was promptly accepted and has met with a high level of registration among the program’s students, who represent the full range of graphic communications companies, from large corporations to small, family-owned businesses.
“We’re delighted that Joe will be sharing his considerable expertise with us,” said D’Amico, in announcing the new course. “Well-developed management and leadership skills have never been more critical to the success of graphic communications companies than they are today. In these challenging and often turbulent times, companies need effective leadership to survive and thrive. That kind of leadership consists not only of applying sound management principles—it also entails the ability to set a strategic direction that enables companies to grow and prosper in today’s digital communications revolution. This course will prepare students to meet that challenge.”
“NAPL has an established track record of facilitating leadership development among its members, focusing not only on corporate leadership but also on individual leadership and personal development,” said Truncale. “I’m very excited about extending that expertise to the Graphic Communications students at NYU and very proud to represent the Association in this way.”
