So, as of Monday, I began my term as SFWA secretary, and it has been a whirlwind week! Not only learning and applying the job, but moving forward with ongoing issues–it’s been busy. However, the board as a whole is thoughtful and careful, moving forward at the greatest speed possible, while being prudent and double-checking every detail. I’m impressed. Confidentiality prevents them from disclosing details, so the silence tends to make people think nothing is happening which is unfortunate, because the dead opposite is true. I’m learning a lot!
