ANWA Service

by Cindy R. Williams

I am wearing my ANWA Executive President hat for this blog. ANWA is more than just a place to grow in our writing ability, it is an organization of service--service on many levels.  Sure, you already know all this. The point I am working toward is that it is Elections Time in ANWA.

It is time to elect a new Treasurer and a new President-Elect for ANWA. Before you think . . . "Oh, no, I am too busy to do that," Or . . . "I couldn't do that. I don't know how," let me tell you a little about what it would take.

The qualifications are:
1.  Be a member of ANWA for a year or more.
2.  Must have served in an ANWA Chapter Presidency.
3.  Be willing to serve your fellow ANWA sisters.

Now a little about what serving on the Executive Board would entail.

Each term is a three year term.
An executive meeting followed by an ANWA Board of Directors meeting once a month.
Following up on items in your area.
Helping out with the annual Writers Conference.
Some ANWA Newsletter articles.
Working on helping ANWA meet the needs of the members.
Praying about the needs of your ANWA sisters.

Perks? Serving with some lovely ANWA ladies. The satisfaction of helping ANWA to become a better writing organization. Great networking. A writing contract . . . okay not really, but you do get to add to your resume that you serve on the Executive Committee of the world's largest female LDS writing group.

Please consider becoming a part of the ANWA leadership.

  1. Sisters, this really IS a wonderful opportunity. The Treasurer only serves two years and our current Treasurer, DeAnn Huff, has done an excellent job streamlining the process. She is a great mentor and will take the time to show you the ropes. The Pres Elect (1 yr) becomes the Pres (1 yr) and then the Past President (1 yr) making it a three year term. I have gotten to know some amazing ladies through this process of serving in ANWA. Don't let boundaries stop you from running in the elections. In our day of technology, we have myriad ways to hold meetings. Love you all and am grateful for the sisters of ANWA. Join the Executive Committee and get to better know the sisters and help move ANWA forward.

  2. Agree with Peggy! I have had the honor of serving with her. I have even been blessed to serve with our inspired founder, Marsha Ward. I stand on a fifty foot soap box and shout, WRITE ON ANWA!
