NATIONAL and STATE AFFILIATION
The Cape Canaveral Pen Women is a branch of the Florida State Association of The National League of American Pen Women, Inc. (FSA/NLAPW), a nonprofit umbrella organization that provides support to all Florida Pen Women. We are comprised of professional women who are artists, published writers and musical composers. By conducting and promoting creative, educational, and charitable activities, the Cape Canaveral Pen Women conduct community outreach to promote all aspects of art, music and writing.
Located on Florida’s Space Coast, the Canaveral branch is governed by a president, two vice presidents, a secretary and a treasurer. This branch also has a membership chairwoman and a newsletter editor who produces the branch’s monthly paper, The Owlet. Our by-laws were signed on April 9, 1969 by the branch’s first executive board led by president Elaine Murray Stone.
Prospective members must meet certain professional requirements which may be found on the National web site.
The Canaveral Pen Women meet on a monthly basis from January through May and September through December. The December meeting is a non-business get-together to celebrate the end-of-year holidays when we collect toys and gifts for several outreach programs including the Hacienda Girls Ranch.
The Canaveral Pen Women are hosting a table at the Authors for Authors events at the Eau Gallie Civic Center on Saturday Nov. 22 & 23, 2014. Stop by and say hello!
