Calling all Authors!

From Your Editor!

November 27, 2018

Merry Christmas!  It is hard to believe the Christmas Season is here.  It is also hard to believe this is my last newsletter as a member of the Board of Directors.  I have truly enjoyed serving on the board the past two years.  I whole heartedly encourage you to get involved in your local guild.  It is a very rewarding experience.  Yes, it is work, but anything that helps you grow requires some work.  I welcome my replacement, Mark Burdette as Director of Website and Newsletter.  I know he will do an amazing job as will the rest of the new Board of Directors.  Please tell them thank you for serving. 


Don’t forget about the FWPPA Holiday Party and Annual Awards on December 12, 2018, from 6-8 p.m.  There will be light snacks (no alcohol), give aways including a FREE IUSA full registration and a free PPA Annual Membership!  And, don’t forget about our annual awards.  Please sign up now to attend. 


I truly hope you have a wonderful and peaceful holiday season and a prosperous new year with lots of exciting things happening for you all.  FWPPA’s new board will be cooking up some great opportunities for education in the coming year.  Don’t miss all the exciting things coming your way. 

Make the most of this Holiday Season and don't forget what's important to you!
