David Niose is the immediate past president of the American Humanist Association and current legal director of the Appignani Humanist Legal Center, running the AHLC's Massachusetts office. His background includes experience in law and mass communication. Having practiced law in Massachusetts, Niose has also worked in print and broadcast media, taught both history and law, and written extensively on a wide array of issues.

Upon joining the AHA board in 2005, Niose initiated and helped develop the AHA's media campaign. Niose has spoken to groups around the country, emphasizing the importance of utilizing mass media to inject humanist ideas into the public dialogue, improve the public image of humanists, and sway public opinion away from the religious right.

As an attorney, Niose has advocated for church/state separation and the rights of humanists and other nontheists, and he is currently involved in implementing a legal strategy to enforce the rights of humanists and other nontheists via the avenue of equal protection law.

He is a founding member of Greater Worcester Humanists, has also served as an officer and board member of Greater Boston Humanists, and is the immediate past president of the AHA Board. 

His speaking interests includes church/state separation, humanist activism, media, mass communication & journalism, religion & philosophy, and culture war issues. Honorarium terms are best negotiated on an individual basis. David Niose does not usually stipulate this fee; however, compensation for travel is required.
