Anderson Fellow in Public Affairs

National Association of Chain Drug Stores
Washington, District of Columbia

Aims of the Fellowship

I primarily worked in two departments: Marketing, Communications and Media Relations, and Human Resources.  Oddly enough I had started the fellowship process expecting to work at the National Restaurant Association.  After Steve Anderson changed jobs to become the CEO and president of NACDS, it was planned that I would work in the Government Affairs department.  My supervisor promptly resigned a week after my arrival in Washington, DC. In the Marketing, Communications and Media relations department, I was given many projects which ranged from research, to writing press releases, to proofreading the Industry Profile and the Annual Report.
