President's Message

We’re here to help…

We all know the economy has been down for a couple of years and money can be tight for many of us. I wanted to remind everyone that OCC does have a Perseverance Fund to help our members with the renewal of their dues. If you, or a fellow member, are facing some tough financial decisions and have not renewed, please get in contact with me. If renewing your National dues also is a financial burden, they, too, have a Perseverance Fund. With these two funds available for assistance, hopefully everyone will be able to help keep their memberships current in both RWA National and OCC.

If renewing your 2011 membership just slipped your mind, then get to the website and take care of it as soon as possible. We will be updating the files and loops and would hate having you miss out on the newsletter and the member’s only sections on the website.

A few of reminders:
  • Don’t forget we will not have a general meeting in April because of the RT Convention in Los Angeles.
  • Are you working on your Orange Rose Contest entry??
  • Check out our March Online Class
  • Get involved with the Chapter - Join a committee. It’s a great way to meet other members. Voting on the Amended Bylaws. If you are not attending the March general meeting, be sure to go to the website to vote.
Hope to see you at the meeting on Saturday. It’s going to be a good one.
