NEW MWSA OFFICERS and DIRECTORS
We'd like to remind everyone that this is an election year for MWSA. In August we will be sending a ballot to all members with candidates so you can cast your votes. Between now and the beginning of August, we will be seeking volunteers to run for office. Elections will be held for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and for four additional at large Directors. Please get involved, and if you'd like to run for office, let us know. More information will be forthcoming, but for now, think about stepping up and running for office or for a position on the board.
BOOK REVIEWERS WANTED
We are receiving a steady stream of books for our "Review & Awards" program. Our present book reviewers have their plate full, so we are asking for more members to volunteer for this rewarding endeavor. Just respond to this Blast! with your intentions and you will be contacted with details for reviewers.
