Tulsan Named National Chair

The Association for Women in Communications names Tulsan Judy Arent-Morency national chair at its annual conference held earlier in October in Seattle.
Arent-Morency has been a member of the Tulsa Chapter of AWC for 34 years, joining the organization as a student when it was named Theta Sigma Phi. She is a past president of the Tulsa Chapter and has held numerous other board positions, and most recently served as national treasurer.
Arent-Morency is the marketing director for Quality Equipment Design Inc. and has held similar positions with Zeeco Inc., Radco Inc., John Zink Co. and the Metropolitan Tulsa Transit Authority. She also is an instructor at the University ofPhoenix Tulsa Campus where she teaches writing courses.
Prior to moving to Oklahoma in 1975, she served as public information specialist for the Wisconsin Department of Regulation and Licensing. While conducting research for a Consumer’s Guide to Charitable Giving, she uncovered many organizations that had little or no accountability to their givers and spent more money on administrative costs than on their stated purpose.
Her research resulted in strict regulation of charitable organizations in Wisconsinand drove many questionable organizations out of the state. As a key witness for the state attorney general’s office, she also was instrumental in drafting legislation regulating the auto repair industry in Wisconsin and enacting one of the first “lemon laws” in the nation.
She is a volunteer and past board member for Woolaroc Museum and Clarehouse, an alternative home for hospice patients during their final days.
In addition to naming Arent-Morency as national chair, AWC also awarded the Tulsa Chapter several awards at the national conference in Seattle, including best newsletter, best Web site, best awards and recognition event for its annual Newsmakers awards, and Chapter Excellence Award (shared with Austin Chapter).
AWC is a professional organization that champions the advancement of women across all communications disciplines by recognizing excellence, promoting leadership and positioning its members at the forefront of the evolving communications era.
