RBS Member Nominated by the NSNC


As you know, the National Society of Newspaper Columnists ("NSNC") is having its “Rebound in Motown” Conference in Detroit, June 23-26, 2011. Many exciting announcements are planned for the event, including the Columnist of the Year Award going to W. Bruce Cameron, winner of the 2006 Robert Benchley Humor Writing Award and author of the 2010 blockbuster A Dog’s Purpose, which is being made into a film by Dreamworks.

I was delighted to be notified by the NSNC that I have been nominated for Membership Chair. Elections will take place at the Conference: Announcement.
I am honored and looking forward to serving on the Board of Directors.

The Robert Benchley Society Ann Arbor Chapter “A Moderate State of Preservation,” is organizing a gathering during the NSNC Conference. Tom Saunders will provide details to the attendees.

Please join us in Detroit for an exciting weekend! --Rose Valenta
