President's Message

Hello Again OCC!

September was a fun filled meeting with lots of roses and a pin being given out. It is always a pleasure to see members receive recognition for their hard work. Now we are looking forward to our October meeting (10-7-2016 to 10-9-2016 if you’re staying at the hotel), which is our annual birthday bash! We will have Margie Lawson as our keynote speaker! I don’t know about you but I’m definitely looking forward to her speaking on, Writing Fresh Visceral Responses: Beyond Hammering Hearts (Morning Workshop) and Top 20 Rhetorical Devices for Fiction Writers (Afternoon Workshop.

Remember the birthday bash theme is “Writing is Our Super Power!” So come up dressed as your favorite superhero or supervillain! It starts on Friday night (October 7th, 2016) with the Write In that will be in the conference room from 8-whenever and then the Bash all day on Saturday (October 8th, 2016), with the PJ parties later in the evening starting at 7:30. It will be wicked fun for all and promises to be a great weekend.

It’s almost time for our annual elections. Thank you to those who have stepped up for the following elected positions!
  •  President\
  • Vice President of Communications
  • Vice President of Programs
  • Treasurer
  •  Secretary

Voting will take place at the November 2015 meeting and elected members will be announced at the December 2015 meeting.

Also thank you for those who have stepped up to volunteer for the non-voting positions. We appreciate you!

Once again, my fellow authors thank you for all that you do and your commitment to OCC RWA where our motto is: “One hand reaching forward, one hand reaching back, in a continuing chain.”
