Our Awards Program

Dwight Zimmerman our soon ot be President has graciously donated ten copies each of "Saga of the Sioux and Lincoln's Last Days" to be sold at the book table at our conference and the proceeds donated toward the costs of running the awards program.

An indication of his belief in the program and the direction MWSA is taking. I am sure I speak for the members when I offer my thanks for this generous donation.

Below I have included Dwights comments on this.

MWSA eNewsletter test

I apologize to everyone, but we are testing the MWSA website's ability to send announcements to users. If you have not tested the new site, please do!

We are going to be asking members for suggestions during the 2012 MWSA Conference. Remember, the MWSA website belongs to you.

Again, we apologize for sending this test to everyone, but we were having some bulk-mail problems.

Announcing new candidates for MWSA officers!

As you know, my term as President of MWSA will be up on September 29, 2012 and I will be stepping down. Although we've grown a lot during my tenure, it's time for new ideas and new leadership. As such, I'm pleased to share with you the names of four members who have agreed to take on the leadership of our organization for the next three years. I want to thank each of them and pledge my support as they build on what we've started and create new ways to achieve our goals.

MWSA authors report on their trip to Italy and Spain

Hi everyone, 

This year, we were contacted by Richard Aubry, a Naval Librarian in Italy, who had received a grant to bring authors to bases in Italy and Spain. Mr. Aubrey wanted to know if we had any members who would be interested in their program that is known as "Author on Deck." I nominated nine members. Mr. Aubrey and his committee evaluated the nine and selected two -- our author of the year for 2012, Jack Woodville London and multi-award winning novelist and biographer, Del Staecker.
