Volunteer Positions

Wisconsin Writers Association began serving the creative needs of Wisconsin writers in 1948 and is registered with the State of Wisconsin as a non-profit organization. WWA depends on its Board of Directors and other member volunteers who work together to donate their time, energy, and ideas to keep WWA going. Here’s a short list of current volunteer opportunities for you to consider.

BOARD MEMBER
A person who has been a WWA member for a year is eligible for a Board position. Board members serve a three-year term. Duties include attending up to three Board meetings per year, participating in Board business via phone and email, and serving an ongoing WWA program in some capacity (for example helping on a committee as shown below). For more information, please contact Karin Schmidt at karinss1945@outlook.com.

CONTEST COMMITTEE
Volunteers are needed to help manage the annual Jade Ring Contest. Primary work occurs from March 1 through July  31 each year. For more information, please contact Laurel Bragstad at bragstll@gmail.com. (Volunteers working on the contest committee are excluded from entering the contests.)

ANNUAL CONFERENCE COMMITTEE
Each year, WWA organizes a fall writing conference for its members and the public. Volunteer help is needed during the conference in areas such as: coordinating the Author and Vendor EXPO, creating raffle baskets and transporting them to the conference, selling raffle basket tickets at the conference, helping at the registration desk, introducing presenters, hosting a Friday evening reader roundtable, and other positions as conference needs are identified. Volunteers will be contacted by phone in order to be guided through general procedures as needed. Please contact Laurel Bragstad at bragstll@gmail.com for more information.
