RWA Board Meeting
September 25, 2011
The RWA Board of Directors had a very productive meeting.
1. The Board approved a one-month operating budget for November 2011 so the Association can continue to conduct business until the new Board of Directors convenes and approves the 2012 budget.
2. The Board approved the use of funds from RWA’s legal reserve to obtain expert advice on the terms and effects of Modification Letters that Harlequin plans to issue beginning in October.
3. For the RWA2012 conference, the Board authorized the Executive Director to enter into a contract for space at the Anaheim Convention Center—located next door to the Anaheim Marriott—for the Literacy Autographing, as a larger space is required due to the increase in the number of authors and fans participating in the literacy event.
4. The Board approved the creation of both a small press forum and a self-publishing forum within myRWA. The amount of discussion regarding these topics on current listservs indicates a need for a dedicated area for these interests.
