The second in a series of “courageous conversations” about VoiceCatcher’s reorganization was facilitated by Tonia Twigger McConnell on January 25, 2012 at TaborSpace.
Ten participants helped redefine VoiceCatcher’s mission and brainstorm dozens of creative ideas about how to implement that mission so VC distinguishes itself from the other fine literary organizations in the area.
VoiceCatcher is a nonprofit community that inspires, empowers,
and connects women writers and artists in greater Portland/Vancouver.
How we do that—inspire, empower, connect—will be part of the discussion for the third, and final meeting on February 15, 6:00-8:30 p.m. at TaborSpace.
Participants are now researching the similarities and differences among local organizations to uncover opportunities to collaborate as well as to serve unmet needs in the women’s community.
Welcome our new treasurer
Lisa Sudo, a newcomer to VC, has committed to serve as our treasurer. We are delighted to have an accounting professional who is also a poet join the board. Lisa brings years of financial and business experience to the table as well as a desire to become more active in the literary community.
We are still searching for a Community Outreach Coordinator, a Book Inventory Manager, and team players who want to help with events, the website, and social media. If you want to join an enthusiastic community who is committed to doing great things for women writers and artists, contact Carolyn Martin (CarolynMartin62@comcast.net) for more information.
