Working with other volunteers and board members, the Education Committee develops ideas from concept through fruition for our K-12 students in the local area and across the state through virtual platforms.
Programs & Events Committee
Working with other volunteers and board members, the Programs & Events Committee develops ideas from concept through fruition for our adult audiences in the local area and across the state through virtual platforms. Each month we host Georgia authors at our Meet the Author series, and we work with writing instructors each quarter to bring workshops to budding and experienced writers.
Marketing & Outreach Committee
This committee helps get the word out! GWM’s Marketing & Outreach Committee maintains our strong brand identity, develops effective relationships with media outlets, and communicates with our members regularly through email and social media.
Development & Finance Committee
Help GWM with our long-term fundraising and retail strategies. This committee oversees the financial performance of the museum and assists with everything from annual giving to capital campaigns. GWM is excited to grow into its next phase. We hired our first Executive Director in 2020. We rebranded and launched a new, more dynamic website, and are in the process of introducing a retail plan and imagining new exhibits!
Become a Board Member!
GWM was founded in 2014 by active volunteer board members who developed this museum from idea to reality. Our board is composed of hard-working, passionate volunteers, each of whom brings unique talents and skills to GWM. We ask that all board members actively participate on one or more committees and contribute financially to the organization. Board members are expected to represent the interests of the museum and participate in strategic planning, financial and operation oversight, resource development, external community relations, and board development, as needed throughout the course of their term. We are happy to meet with anyone who is seeking a meaningful way to be more connected to our statewide writers’ community.
