Dickerson holds Book Signing; New Appointment

Columbia, SC—Join the Richland County Public Library for a book discussion and signing with Richland County Councilwoman Joyce Dickerson, author of A Tribute to 101 Incredible Women of Distinction Who Influenced My Life From My House to the White House, at 3 p.m. on Sunday, September 12 at the Main Library, 1431 Assembly St. This program is free and open to adults.

Dickerson has served on Richland County Council, representing District Two, since 2005. Her main goals are to better manage growth in her community, to improve relations between citizens and county government, and to create economic development opportunities.

“It is now my pleasure to introduce you to these women of honor, whose stories have contributed so much to me,” said Mrs. Dickerson. “Because of them, I was able to look beyond my economic, social and financial circumstances into a new realm of endless possibilities.”

This is an appointed position by the President of the Order in which she will serve until the 2011 Annual Conference.

NFWL was created to provide strategic resources for women leaders to be strong and effective elected officials and to develop leadership through knowledge and networking opportunities.
