SLO NightWriters Board Election Information


SLO NightWriters is several years overdue holding elections for primary board positions:

  • President
  • Vice-President

Our current officers have been wearing multiple hats to cover vacant positions, in addition to coping with the stresses of the pandemic.  SLO NightWriters needs your support to function in the future. A description of each position appears below.


If you would like to run for one of the elected positions, simply send an email to with your name and the position you are seeking. We will place your name on the candidate list, and we will contact you with further information.

If you know someone who you think would make a good board member, please submit their name.  Nominations will be kept anonymous and the elections committee will contact them to see if they are interested. 

Candidates will have the opportunity to submit a 250 word statement to be published in the newsletter, on the website and to be distributed through email.


Open nomination period:

The election committee established by the board includes:

  • TBD (volunteer needed)

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the election.


In addition to the elected positions mentioned above, there are several unelected positions open in the NightWriter organization.  These positions are appointed by the board.  They can become voting positions on the board if the member has a willingness to participate in board activities.  Please email if you have an interest in filling one of them.


All elected board positions have one vote each on the board.  Although each of the elected positions below have their specific responsibilities, their primary responsibility is to participate in board activities to develop plans and programs for the benefit of the organization. 


The President serves as the official representative of the organization and ensures compliance with our bylaws, board policies, and state and federal requirements. The President presides over all meetings and is responsible for overseeing committee and chairperson appointments and activities.



The Vice President performs the duties of the President in his/her absence and performs other duties as assigned by the President or the Board.


The Secretary keeps an accurate record of meeting minutes and presents minutes for examination and approval at subsequent meetings. The secretary also handles correspondence as directed by the President and Board.


The Treasurer handles all financial matters for the organization including maintaining complete and accurate records of all financial transactions and the preparation of state and federal filings. The Treasurer presents monthly reports of all income and expenditures for examination at each Board meeting and serves as an authorized signatory on all accounts.
