SFWA Executive Director Jane Jewell Steps Down

SFWA announced that Jane Jewell plans to step down from her long-time role as SFWA Executive Director this year. Kate Baker has been hired as an interim office manager, effective immediately, to handle membership services and administrative duties. All messages sent to the SFWA Executive Director will be forwarded to Baker, who will pass Nebula-related information and queries to Jewell.

SFWA has expressed deep gratitude to Jewell for “her long service to SFWA” and also “for helping us transition to a new administrator.” Jane Jewell will stay on as a special advisor for the 2011 Nebula Awards Weekend.
