AMWA Mid-America Chapter



The Mid-America chapter of the American Medical Writer's Association was founded in 1985, and historically serves AMWA members living in the states of Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. We publish a quarterly newsletter (latest issue Summer 2021) , and hold regular in-person meetings. The Board of Directors also holds regular meetings by teleconference, and minutes of those meetings are available.

Upcoming Chapter Events:

TechWriteSTL (St Louis)

September 30th (dinner at CJ Muggs in Webster Groves, in person only) - Ruth Thaler-Carter, "Improving Your Public Speaking"
Public speaking remains one of the top fears, but sometimes we just have to face it - especially in the current Zoom-crazy environment. We might want to talk to a group about a cause or topic we care about; we might be asked to speak to colleagues about a work-related skill or process. Ruth E. Thaler-Carter, a popular in-person and online presenter for many professional organizations, will provide tips for making well-received speeches and overcoming your fear of public speaking.

November 03 - Leslie Neistadt, The Best and Worst Books of 2021
