A Note From Our RMFW President
« on: December 06, 2016, 04:53:20 PM »
Hi everyone,

If you haven’t yet voted, please do so by this Friday. If you have any questions regarding the ballot, see the home page of the website: http://rmfw.org/  You can also email me or other board members with questions: http://rmfw.org/about-rmfw/board-members/  Our tech people and election committee members have worked hard to make this an easy process for you all. Thank you Wendy Howard, Vicki Rubin, Christine Jorgensen and Susan Smith.

Although we only have one person running for Vice President, your vote is a vote of confidence, so mark your ballot for Sheri Duff. The other item on the ballot is to pass an Amendment to our Bylaws. This Amendment brings us into compliance with the State of Colorado and it is the first hurdle in changing our non-profit status from being a 501(c)(6) to a 501(c)(3), which will save us money in sales taxes, allow donors to write off contributions to RMFW on their personal taxes, and will allow us to apply for grants that we are not now eligible for. Getting our non-profit status changed is something the board has been working on for years. We’re hoping it will finally come to fruition in 2017. We will keep you all informed as we work on this big project.

The annual holiday parties are this Saturday! There is more information in emails and on the website. We hope to see many of you there!

FRONT RANGE HOLIDAY PARTY

One more item. On January 21st, we will hold our Annual Meeting at the Sam Gary Branch of the Denver Public Library, 2961 Roslyn Street in the Stapleton area. Membership will not be voting on any issues however we will review annual reports from the committees that serve Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers.This would be a chance for members to get to know your committee chairs and to understand what goes into making RMFW run. We will publish the annual committee and financial reports on the website and will have links to those reports in emails and in the newsletter. Directly following the annual meeting, we will hold our January board meeting. Anyone who wants to stay to observe the board in action is welcome.

Happy holidays! Write On!
