Donald Dingman is currently collecting info for, and compiling, the second quarter Broadside. Members, if you have any info for our quarterly newsletter, Donald is the one you’ll want to get with—or any board member and we’ll get your info where it needs to go.
Margie Lukas, the Publications Co-Chair, is just finalizing the 2015 Bulletin. Submissions for that publication are closed and any other info for the Bulletin will be saved for either the future Bulletin or the future Broadside—whatever your preference.
Make sure NWG has your current mailing address, email address and your preference for receiving our publications. We’re working hard to make delivery of your NWG information as smooth as possible and we can only do that with your cooperation so, please let us know if your membership information changes.

Second Quarter NWG Board Meeting was held May 9th in Seward.
Our successes at Spring Conference as well as avenues to take in upcoming Spring Conferences occupied Old Business. The board thanks all those involved in setting up the Spring Conference last April.
Committee Chairs are well into planning Fall 2015 Conference and they’ve got some pretty cool ideas on speakers and literary representatives. This blog will be updated as more information becomes available on that but it look like you should block out early October to attend.
Another topic of discussion was the upcoming elections of Board Members. Several officers are vacating due to NWG limits and in order to keep Nebraska Writers Guild moving in a forward direction, volunteers have stepped up to head a Nominations Committee.
2015 Membership drive is in its final stages. The Membership Committee contacted all members with directions to renew for the year.
Preparations are underway for the 2015 Bulletin. Margie Lukas is finalizing that document. Thanks to her for taking on the Co-Chair of Publications. Thanks also to Donald Dingman for assuming the other half of that position with his Broadside duties. He’s currently setting up the second quarter release of that newsletter. Send all info for the Broadside and Bulletin to either Co-Chair or any board member.
