Who We Are 2000
In March 2000, the six founders met and agreed to be called “The Board.” They elected the following officers:
President - Lynn Coleman
Vice-President - Andrea Boeshaar
Secretary - Gail Martin
Treasurer - DiAnn Mills
Web Page Administrator - Misty Taggart
Member At Large - Tracie Peterson
From its inception, the then-named ACRW (American Christian Romance Writers) sought to have editors be an integral part of the organization. In April 2000, the Board contacted editors of Christian romance and women’s fiction and invited them to join.
In July 2000, Misty Taggart stepped down as an officer due to time conflicts and Brandilyn Collins was invited to sit on the Board.
In August, as the number of members on the e-mail loop increased, Christine Lynxwiler was was asked to serve as ACRW’s first List Hostess.
As 2000 drew to a close, ACRW numbered 93 members, including published authors, not-yet-published authors, editors, and agents.
