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.
