RWA Announces Next Slate of Board Candidates

RWA released its slate of Board candidates. Article 8 of the Bylaws explains the procedures for Election. Elections are conducted during the fourth quarter of the RWA fiscal year with one Regional Director from each region shall be elected each year.

If you are unhappy with the way that RWA is run, this is the place to start. Lobby for a position on the Board and make changes internally. If you don’t, how can you complain that RWA isn’t going the direction that serves you best as an author?

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Yes, yes and emphatically yes again. What’s the saying? Change happens from within? Of course, I also feel the same about people who complain about our Congress/President/State/City Officials, etc. but don’t vote or let their representatives know how they feel.

    Absolutetly! And if you can’t serve on the board, offer up your name for a committee position. Those people have an affect on shaping policy as well. I’m putting my name in the hat since I’m not in a position to give the time necessary for the board.
