Mrs. Patti Van Slyke
Department: Member and Communication Services
Title: Journal Editor
Phone: (785) 861-8816
Patti works with the KBA Board of Editors to set policy and a production schedule for The Journal of the KBA, and to approve authors and content for substantive articles. She’s your contact if you are interested in writing for The Journal or need to place a classified ad or have an idea for a feature. Patti enjoys providing harmony to Meg’s song of the day—and she’s also occasionally sneaked her 100-lb. lap dog into the office, reasoning it is easier to ask forgiveness than permission. Patti obsesses over deadlines, striving to produce The Journal of the Kansas Bar Association on time. She is also responsible for producing the KBA Weekly (online newsletter) and Law Wise, a teaching tool about law, government and civics for elementary and secondary educators.
