Come visit us at one of these upcoming meetings

Please join us Saturday, December 14th for our annual holiday gathering.   Same Bat time, same Bat location.   Bring an ornament for the traditional ornament exchange.   We’ll play a game and hand out writing awards as well as the Yellow Rose Award.   Come celebrate the season and your fellow chapter mates with food, fun and fellowship.   See you there!

Be thinking about your fellow chapter mates and which of them are deserving of the chapter’s highest honor, the Yellow Rose Award.

 

The Yellow Rose Award is our way of acknowledging that chapter member who goes above and beyond the call of duty to serve the chapter and to serve its members.

 

We’ll send out the call for nominations here in a couple of weeks. Voting will unfortunately have to take place over Thanksgiving week so that we can tally votes and announce the winner at December’s meeting, but the process should be quick.

 

Bear in mind that the following members are not eligible for nomination at this time as they’ve won in the past five years: Cindy Dees, Amanda McMurrey, Lisa Fenley, Chrissy Szarek, or Jen FitzGerald.

Join us for USA Today bestselling author of historical romance Jess Michaels and her program, “Making Your Career a Priority.” Jess will speak at our October 19  regular meeting. (Please note that the original post saying the meeting was Oct 26 was incorrect.)

Decide what you want from your career, what your priorities need to be to get what you want and how to implement a ‘big year’ plan to take your goals to the next level.

Jess Michaels is the author of 70 historical romance novels and has been a USA Today bestselling author 10 times. We’re honored to have her speak to our group.
