As most of you may know by now, I’m the new vice president of the Pikes Peak Writers. This has been in the works for a little over a month, which is one of the reasons I chose to not run again as president of the CSFWG. Things went as I had hoped because it was time for me to move on from the CSFWG. I’d done all I could as president of that organization, and I wish the new president, Andy Burns, all the best as he builds his own legacy in the group.

As for my role in the PPW, I’ll be backing up the new president, Laura Hayden. She’s a little remote from the organization, being in Alabama, but she’s a wonderful leader and a pleasure to work with. With the Internet shrinking the world, I’m sure we won’t have any issues with communication and collaboration. I’m really looking forward to working with Laura and the rest of the board members to guide the PPW into the future.
