Most of you who know me, know I have been part of the San Francisco Writers Conference for 10 years. A friend of mine asked me if I would like to volunteer , and I was so excited. The conference was then held at the St Francis Hotel, and I loved every minute of it.
Here is a photo of the volunteers for that year! 2005.
The only two from this photo who are still volunteering, are Kate Farrell, and myself. I am sure we are missing a few people in this photo. We have 75 volunteers, so it is a big crew. As the Volunteer Director, I must say our volunteers do an amazing job.
We could not put on this wonderful event without all of their help.
Kate is the current President of the Women’s National Book Association, SF Chapter, and I am the former President. The SFWC is how I discovered the WNBA-SF Chapter, which is an organization I love dearly. You can visit our table at the conference to learn more.
I look forward to this event every year. It feel like a class reunion. If you have never been to the conference, you are missing a great event.
If you cannot make it for the entire conference, we now offer classes that are open to anyone to sign up for on Thursday and Monday. Click here to view the schedule.
I will be teaching “WordPress for Newbies” on Monday. Enrollment is limited so sign up now.
