Oh my god I can’t begin to explain how much fun the Birthday Bash was! The board and I couldn’t have been more thrilled to see how many attended as well as how many were in costume. There were certificates for Book in a Year passed out by Beth Yarnall along with some surprise gifts she had, Roses for our members getting contracts for books, BBB and Orange Rose certificates and pins passed out by Liz Scott, Joyce Ward, Tracy Red, Barb DeLong and Jann Ryan. Thank you everyone who made volunteered your time and for those who attended. The board is already planning the next Bash!
Our speakers were Lauren Dane and Deb Werksman. It was indeed a magical day and night of fun. Thank you so much OCC for being the great chapter that you are. Now this coming month in the morning we have Herb Williams-Dalgart, “Engaging Your Readers – The Tools and Tricks for Building Your Brand Online” and in the Afternoon: Amy Denim, “Taking Control of Your Writing Career”
Ballots for our election 2016 Board Election and Bylaws vote will be at the meeting or you can vote via online on the website. A copy of the approved bylaws (that need to be voted on by chapter members) will be available upon request at the meeting. The bylaws will also be online in the members section of the www.occrwa.org website and the newsletter.
