For Immediate Release

York, Pa. – Barley Snyder attorney Martin R. Siegel has recently been named president of The Daily Pennsylvanian Alumni Association (DPAA) – an organization of alumni contributing to the University of Pennsylvania’s student newspaper, The Daily Pennsylvanian.

The DPAA was founded in 1987 with a mission of connecting its alumni members and student staff of The Daily Pennsylvanian and currently has over 3000 members. As president of DPAA’s Board of Directors, Siegel will provide leadership for mentorship, communication and fundraising efforts, and assistance to students with media operations. In this role, he succeeds a national news reporter from The Washington Post, Amy Gardner. Siegel, who is a University of Pennsylvania graduate (1977), served as a managing editor of The Daily Pennsylvanian in 1976.

“The mentoring that we do will hopefully teach and instill good, quality journalism ethics. With the advent of multiple online media platforms, our goal is to help students continue to adapt with this growing transition,” Siegel said.

Siegel is a member of the Barley Snyder Real Estate and Environment & Energy practice groups. Prior to joining the firm, he spent more than two decades as a litigator at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection where he litigated more than 250 appeals in state and federal courts and in front of the Pennsylvania Environmental Hearing Board. His experience has led him to leadership positions with a multitude of nonprofit organizations across central Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic. He is also a prolific speaker at professional gatherings throughout Pennsylvania on environmental topics.

“Serving on the DPAA board is a great way to get acquainted with other folks who served in this same role,” Siegel said. “The extent of dedication and commitment that alumni have to the newspaper is what drives this successful outlet.”
