The WisRWA Chapter Service Award is an award that WisRWA gives out to members who have shown exemplary service to our organization often going above and beyond the call of duty for WisRWA. Members are nominated and sent to the Chapter Service Award chair or chairs who will read through the nominations and choose the winning recipient or recipients. The committee received many nominations and were quite pleased to see all the ways our members are serving the chapter.
To serve is to give above and beyond what is expected. This year, we are fortunate to who have two members whose service stood out to the committee. The women who earned the 2016 Chapter Service Award have certainly done that for the many years they have been members of WisRWA. They were both nominated by multiple members, which made the decision of who to vote for so very easy. Congratulations to Gini Athey and Virginia McCullough.
WisRWA members, Mia Jo Celeste, author of Other Than, and Barbara M. Britton, author of Providence and Building Benjamin, will be talking about book launch parties (both actual and virtual) at the June WisRWA meeting in Milwaukee. Jennifer Rupp asked them a few questions about their first year as published authors.
