Scott Sanders


Scott Sanders co-founded High Noon Communications in 1999 after more than a decade's experience in the non-profit sector. Sanders has directed successful communications projects and campaigns for service programs, advocacy initiatives, fundraising projects, and cultural events. His writing—whether tailored to speeches, testimony, fact sheets, newsletters, or brochures—is clear, direct, and engaging. His public policy and advocacy experiences are valuable tools in working with organizations developing policy-related materials or planning policy-related events and conferences.

Sanders' experience spans a wide-range of communications and advocacy projects.  During his tenure as director of public affairs at Whitman-Walker Clinic, he was responsible for publications, advertising, press relations, and advocacy initiatives for the primary provider of community-based HIV/AIDS services in the greater Washington area. 

As associate director of public policy for the American Foundation for AIDS Research (AmFAR), Sanders employed his communications skills to improve advocacy campaigns directed at policy makers on Capitol Hill and in the Administration.  He worked closely with numerous national and local HIV/AIDS organizations on issues related to access to care, treatment education, and consumer empowerment.

Sanders is a patient care volunteer at the Community Hospice of Washington, where he has been recognized for his service on the inpatient unit. He also volunteers at Joseph’s House, a home for formerly homeless men and women in the final stages of AIDS and cancer, and serves as president of its board of directors.

Sanders holds a B.A. in English from the University of Virginia.

Peggy Meehan joined High Noon Communications after 18 years in the association management business. Her wide range of experience includes high-level positions in management, communications, and special events.  

Most recently Meehan was the director of administration for the National Council of State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) where she managed the day-to-day operations of a 21-person association, planned conferences and special events, organized board and membership meetings, prepared and monitored a $3.3 million annual budget, tracked strategic plan implementation, and served as staff liaison to the 17-member board of directors and its audit and elections committees. 

Prior to NCSHA, Meehan was the director of communications at the Urban Land Institute (ULI).  She developed and implemented a national public relations plan that resulted in substantial yearly increases in press coverage for ULI. Meehan was also responsible for writing a monthly section of Urban Land magazine, publicizing special events and publications, promoting individuals in ULI’s senior resident fellows program, and fielding press inquiries.  Meehan served as a board member of the National Association of Real Estate Editors (NAREE). 

Meehan’s career began at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) where she held a variety of positions.  In her last two years, she served as director of special projects where she helped to secure and manage a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant.  The grant trained over 750 nonprofit housing developers on the importance of quality design in affordable housing. She was also special events coordinator for the first Accent on Architecture for which she played a key role in organizing the logistics for a 1,200-person awards gala and dinner at the National Building Museum. She received the AIA presidential citation for exceptional service.

Meehan holds a B.A. in History from the University of Virginia, an M.A. in Liberal Arts from St. John’s College, Annapolis, MD, and a Masters in Education from Old Dominion University.
