This just in from Annette Dashofy, PW Vice President
You should have received a letter recently from Pennwriters outlining a proposed change to the bylaws, which will result in all of our memberships being due on the same date. However, I’m aware that this has created some confusion, and some renewing members want to take advantage of the prorated fee now. I apologize for any misunderstandings.
This change is currently JUST a proposal. It cannot go into effect until after the membership votes to approve the change to the bylaws. We plan to have this in order by the first of July, which is when we’ll start prorating membership renewals until we get everyone on the same page by July of 2013. Until then, if your membership renewal is due, it’s still $45.
Thanks so much for your patience as we work this out.
Hope to see you at the conference!

This year the theme for the Area 7 basket will be, Celebrate the Independent Book Store. I have contacted Around the Block Books in my neighborhood for a donation to the basket. The owners were happy to participate. Please visit the Independent Book Store(s) near you and ask them to include information about their store, their programs for authors, and a gift for the basket. Around the Block Books is contributing a book light and a journal.
You can bring these items with you if you are attending the conference if you can’t make or you prefer not to have to pack any more stuff you can send them to me at the following address:
Bobbi Carducci, 17141 Magic Mountain Drive, Round Hill, VA 20141
Please let me know if you plan to bring something so we can meet and get your contribution in the basket before the drawing.
