Time to Renew

Hello to all LRWA members!

It’s that time of year again where we are faced with making decisions such as how many re-gifted Christmas presents is considered too many? Will the IRS believe that seeing Fifty Shades of Grey is actually research? Should we tell Great Aunt Edna her fruitcake makes a great door stop?

Well here’s a decision that isn’t anywhere near as difficult to make – renewing your LRWA membership!

Go to the LRWA website www.lowcountryrwa.com where you have the option to either renew on-line or print a hardcopy application which can be mailed (or brought to the January 23rd meeting) with your payment.

The renewal fee is $30.00 due by January 31st. An additional late charge of $5.00 will be added after February 29th (it’s a leap year!)

As always, membership in the RWA National Organization is required, so please be sure to include your RWA member number with your renewal information.

If you have any questions regarding membership either with LRWA or the RWA National Organization, please feel free to ask. If I don’t know the answer, which I probably won’t as I’m brand new at this, I will find out for you.

Looking forward to seeing everyone return, and let’s make 2016 a really great year!

Interested in Running for Office?

At our August Meeting, we finalized the members of the Nominations Committee for the 2015 Board of Directors elections. Appointed by Board Member Emmanuelle Nesbitt Murray, our Nominations Committee chairman for this year is Angela Mizell. Thank you, Angela, for volunteering your time.

In addition, Hilary Brown and Ina Nesbitt have volunteered to serve on the Nominations Committee. Details will soon be sent to the group outlining which positions are open for election and the associated duties for that position. If you already know you are interested in running for a position on the board or nominating someone for a position (with their permission, of course), please contact any one of these committee members.

Thank you Ina, Hilary, and Angela for volunteering your time for the betterment of LRWA!

August Meeting Date Change

Please note that our August meeting date has changed! Our monthly meeting will now be on August 15th… same time. Please email egnmurray@mail.com if you are able to attend so we can have an accurate head count.

Happy 4th of July

I hope all of our members had a wonderful and safe Fourth of July.
