New blood, that is..
Yes, it’s that time of year when we’re scouting for members who would like to serve IWOC by serving on the Board of Directors. As of this writing, five of our current Board Members have been generous enough to volunteer for another term. I am grateful, as they each are great “donors” to the well-being of our organization. Yet we’re thirsting for more. To continue serving its members in the best ways possible, we need an infusion of new people who can inject fresh ideas that will keep IWOC strong, relevant and vibrant. Now and into the future.
So spill: Are you willing to run? Or know someone who might be? Nominate them – or even better, nominate yourself!
Here are the data to enter into your decision-making:
Since 1981, IWOC has been playing a unique and vital role devoted to helping independent writers succeed. This is your opportunity to actively help morph IWOC into your vision of how it can best serves its members. Come join the Board. In doing so, I can almost guarantee one more benefit: You’ll find yourself growing in positive, unexpected ways. To my surprise, I know I did.
I seriously hope you give it a shot.
Note: Please send your nominations to the Nominating Committee – either Brent Brotineb, Betsy Storm or myself -- by Friday, August 14. Questions? Contact me!
