Patricia Prijatel, Distinguished Professor Emerita, Drake School of Journalism
Are you a leader? Do you write like one? Here’s how you can —and should.
Pat’s presentation will help you define your areas of leadership and encourage you to communicate their strengths with energy and precision.
Presenter: Patricia Prijatel is the author of Surviving Triple-Negative Breast Cancer and the co-author of The Magazine from Cover to Cover. She is the founder and editor of the Positives About Negative blog, designated a Top Breast Cancer Blog. She is the E.T. Meredith Distinguished Professor Emerita, the former director of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, and founder of the E.T. Meredith Center for Magazine Studies at Drake University.

Fleming Joins National Board
Congratulations to chapter president Peggy Fleming, who is now a member of national AWC’s Board of Directors.
Peggy believes “this is an exciting time for AWC and a great time to be involved at the national level where you can be part of developments that will shape the organization for years to come. As incoming co-chair of the MarCom Committee, it makes sense to have a closer connection to what is going on with the board.”
Her 3-year term began January 1, 2016.
