Joan’s sessions at the NAGC Communications School draw standing-room-only crowds. Imagine all the questions you could ask if you could have an entire hour with her, all to yourself.

If you are picked in the drawing, you will meet with Joan at the 2014 school to schedule a phone call to:

  • Ask questions about speechwriting
  • Plan your organization’s next presentation
