We have a couple of announcements!

We have some positions opening. First is our Vice President position. If you are interested in taking on the VP role, please let us know as we'll be voting in June. Duties will be to assist the President and eventually take over the org.

The second position is Programming Lead. We have some volunteers to help with programming already for Washington and Portland, but we'd like to have a team lead. If you are interested in being Programming Lead or taking on an event, please let us know!

We will also be having monthly volunteer meetings beginning in July. If you would like to take part, make sure to notify us at info@cascadewriters.com so we can get you added to the google calendar. If you are interested in hosting a meeting, please let us know as well!

Thanks!
