MK BARR Elected President of CNW!

Dear CNW members, family, and friends! It's with great pleasure that we announce the results of the vote for the Presidency of Cartoonists Northwest. The election took place on Sat. Nov. 21 at the regular monthly meeting....and MARYBETH K. BARR ("MK") won unanimously! MK brings fresh energy and enthusiasm to the CNW ship of state, and all CNW members (and prospective members) can no doubt look forward to an exciting new year of CNW happenings under her leadership. Outgoing President Keith Curtis presented a heartfelt...and hilarious...farewell speech that recapped the eventful years he spent as a CNW officer. After the vote the group celebrated by watching a short flick about Will Eisner, and the history-making animated film "Gertie the Dinosaur" (1914, Winsor McCay), followed by food and drink at the Hurricane Cafe.

President MK has begun assembling her new cabinet of officers. New Secretary Nat Cook will replace outgoing Secretary Jeff Hawley. Consider volunteering for the post of V.P. or Treasurer! Outgoing officers will train. CNW Needs YOU! If you're interested, please contact MK to discuss. Email her at cartoonistnw@gmail.com
