Unless there is a dire emergency, this is our schedule.
We need everyone to help keep our chapter active.
First; we need speakers. If you have been disappointed with the presenters, then please help us find ‘good’ speakers.
During our  January meeting, we experienced a very constructive critique session. Also, Anna James shared her self-publishing experience.
Then the following months need input. Who do you know who we can ask or what writing area can you talk
about? Contact me if you’re shy about offering.
It feels like everyone thought the other members would take up the slack, but the board ended up burned out and disappointed.
With a New Year and new board, we expect those who showed such enthusiasm at the picnic and party to keep it up.
Barbara Felgate and Linda Cook are taking on important jobs. Let’s all get behind them.
PS. the online classes are set to join.
Chapter dues are coming up.
