Join the Board

NwSG board members are passionate about becoming working writers and see NwSG as a gateway to success. They are deeply committed to NwSG’s growth and prosperity, and back it up with accountability. In exchange, board members wield unique influence over the direction of NwSG. They have final say over which industry VIPs are invited to the Northwest, and gain access to closed networking events with those guests, among many other perks.
