PPW is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors. The Board ensures that PPW abides by its Bylaws, state and federal laws, and the rules that bind a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. In addition, members of the Board often have additional roles in the organization. The size of the Board and some of the job titles have changed over the years as the needs of PPW have evolved. But what remains consistent is the volunteers’ focus on the health of the organization, and the commitment they have to the writers they serve.
Board members are elected to a two-year term at the annual meeting every September. Anyone interested in running for an open position must submit a one-page letter of inquiry detailing the position of interest, qualifications, and a brief bio to the nominations committee by August 31st of the respective year. Email letters to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put Board Nomination in the subject line.
