Disappointed, but moving forward

Message from Executive Director, Bob Semerau

Our discussions with the host group for a fall conference have been put on hold until spring due to problems with housing availability.

Meanwhile, the OWAC Board of Directors continues to reach out to venues in hopes of working out a host site for fall 2021 conference. Any ideas or contacts you might have would be appreciated.

Recently the Pat Vachini High School Student Writing and Photography contest wrapped up and awards were given to eight outstanding entries in both divisions. Information is being posted on the website at www.owac.org .

Our former board member and current web master/newsletter editor, Gigi de Jong, wants to remind you to post often to the website by logging in and clicking on Submit a Blog Post. Don’t let it fool you, the button is for all posts including published articles, book info, photographs, and of course blogs posts. A posting here populates the website and the newsletter, as well as our Facebook page.

The 2021 Excellence in Craft award winners will be announced shortly, once judging has been completed. Watch the OWAC website and Facebook page.

Summer is rolling in and now is the time to get moving outdoors. Many new stories are being made each day, and we are the ones to share them with the world. Let’s get out there!

Yours,

Bob Semerau

About

Bob Semerau

The many years I have spent running my own business gives me a unique perspective on managing projects and creating effective programs. Coupled with the ten years I have been writing for Western Outdoor News these experiences have allowed me a set of skills perfectly suited for the OWAC Board of Directors. During my tenure as OWAC Vice President we have achieved substantial progress in the way OWAC operates and how we serve our membership. These contributions have been some of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences of my professional life. The further development of the craft awards program, working with each successive chair person, is among the many progressive developments I have accomplished as a volunteer on the OWAC Board. My interest in making OWAC work better, adding value both professionally and personally for each member, is the driving force behind my desire to stay aboard and complete initiatives recently begun. I seek your vote for re-election to the board so I may further the cause of OWAC and its membership and help it to continue to build as a unique, and outstanding, professional organization.
