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. The branch newsletter, The Owlet, is issued nine times a year, one issue for each monthly meeting, September through May. 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, www.nlapw.org.
