PNWA Conference in Progress

Live from Bellevue Washington ... The PNWA conference is well underway. As with all conferences there is so much to do, see, and learn. And today is no different.

A great Thanks to All the people behind the scenes who work so hard to make this event spectacular.

Joe Beernink, Kelli Liddane, Andrew Stoute

On my way to the gym, when the rest of the world was sleeping, I met three fabulous people. The behind the scenes worker bees. You know the type. They're the last to turn out the lights at the end of the night, and the first to awake preparing for the day. They make conferences like this a huge success.

  • Joe Beernink event liaison extraordinaire.
  • Kellie Liddane managing director superstar. 
  • Andrew Stoute ex-board member continuing to give. 

Thank you all, and everyone else behind this fabulous event. 

Now... I'm flying to my next event. But next Friday I will be back with a recap and highlights of the PNWA conference. It will almost be like being here. 

Enjoy the Journey!

  1. The people behind the scenes are oh so important. My hat is off to them (well, my proverbial one)! Best of luck at the conference Karlene(and Linda)!. I hope you ladies have an excellent time.

  2. Hi Karlene, funny seeing you here when I just saw you 'there.' This is my second PNWA conference, and once again, I am impressed. I'm going to say out loud in this comment what I said privately to you: PNWA is such a good organization that I'm going to see how I can volunteer and get involved in more than the conference. (The conference is one to put on your calendars early if you can, writers!)

  3. Hi, Karlene,

    Sounds like you're having a blast. Can't wait to read all the wonderful details. Fly safely.... and have a great weekend.

  4. Thank you so much Heather! Next time we'll all be here together.

  5. Linda, Yes... a great organization! I too am going to get more involved. I love our writing community! See you soon!

  6. Thank you our favorite Diamond! Very Awesome!

  7. Thank you Michael. I sure wish you could make it out here sometime. You would love it. Maybe next year.
