Current Project: Edits for A Marriage of Inconvenience
Status: Pub date: December 1, 2012
Throughout the life of this chapter, it has struggled to survive. The only time we had enough members to really function well was during Genene's presidency. At that time, I believed we had made it and the chapter would continue to grow. Not really sure what happened.
If Genene joined the chapter in '92 I must have joined around 1990. I know that I was only a member for a couple of months before I was elected secretary. The members were thrilled to have an eager new author among their ranks.
Before I could blink, I was president. I don't remember how long I held this office. I know it was at least four years. It might have been longer.
Genene do you remember how long I was president?
Anyway once again, I held the office until I could talk someone else into doing the job. If my memory holds true that person was Michelle Marks. Again, Genene jump in any time.
As a chapter we held a conference every year. We met authors such as Susan Wiggs, Stella Cameron, Robin Hatcher, Lisa Jackson, Catherine Anderson, and so many more...
I would never give up those times. They were so rewarding. I hold them dear to my heart and am so saddened by the end. Although like Genene I understand that it is probably the right decision. I would love to get together with the authors of this chapter from time to time, however, I fear that this will most likely not happen.
I hope someone with lots of organizational skills can put something together a couple of times a year.
It's been such a great journey. As tears brim in my eyes, I'm going to quit.
Thank you to all the wonderful people I have met through this chapter.
