Carol Taber joins the American Leadership & Policy Foundation as an Honorary Fellow. Carol enjoyed a 30-year career as a publisher of national women’s magazines. In recognition of her distinguished publishing career, she was recognized with such awards as Outstanding Woman in Business, Outstanding Media Person of the Year; World’s Who’s Who of Women; and induction into the National Academy of Women Achievers. Taber also served on the New Jersey Board of Directors of the International Women’s Forum, an organization that provides women of extraordinary achievement a global communication and networking opportunity.
Responding to the 9/11 attacks, Taber founded FamilySecurityMatters.org (FSM) in September 2002; within one year Taber – along with FSM’s experts and executives – appeared in hundreds of media interviews for national radio and television audiences, and their OpEds were read in major market newspapers and websites around the country. Taber was then selected by the National Center for Policy Analysis’s profile of “The Woman of the Month”. The award cites the nominated woman’s unique contributions to the economy, public policy and society as a whole.
Taber is co-author of “Reclaim American Liberty”, published by University Press in 2011. The book explores alternatives to reclaim American liberties from those who do not embrace its unique character. These choices are meant to save American exceptionalism, a concept that recognizes the American experiment as matchless in limiting the powers of government and in maximizing individual freedoms.
Also in 2011, Taber was awarded both the U.S. Counterterrorism Advisory Team’s (USCTAT) Winston Spencer Churchill Award and the Combatant’s Cross, the highest recognition by the USCTAT. Taber’s awards were presented for her exemplary work since Sept. 11, 2001 in promoting and supporting both public awareness of national security and the importance of public participation.
