Springfield Writers’ Guild Elects 2017 Officers
Each October, the membership of Springfield Writers’ Guild elects new officers for the coming year from the slate the Nominating Committee submitted. According to the SWG Bylaws, officers may remain in office for two consecutive years. Yvonne Erwin, presiding President, was re-elected for a second term, as was Candy Simonson, Vice-President, and Michael Humphrey, Director-at-Large. John Cawlfield, having served two years as Treasurer moved to the Secretary position for 2017. Lynette Garrison was elected to the role of Treasurer.
