The Federation of BC Writers has planned a Re-visioning and Renewal Retreat to be held in January 2015. In advance of this retreat, David Blinkhorn, Executive Director, tendered his resignation at the December Board Meeting. He will be working with members of the Board to ensure a smooth transition. The Board and membership of the Federation of BC Writers thanks David for his year and a half of dedicated service, and wishes him well in his future endeavours.
“Engaging the membership is key to the Federation’s future,” President Ben Nuttall-Smith said of the Board’s priorities moving forward. “As an association, we must tap into the skills and passion of our members. We have to embody the credo of ‘writers helping writers.’ Key to that goal is an engaged Board and a commitment to reaching out to all regions. Our strength is in the membership, wherever in BC members happen to live and write.”
