About Brianna's work: The Write Society is a full-service writing, editing, and fundraising consultancy. I assist debut authors with all things writing.
How she has contributed to ACES: I am a member of ACES.
Why she feels she is the best candidate for the position: I served as secretary of my college's student government. I'm extremely organized, efficient, and enjoying doing volunteer work.
What she envisions for ACES during her tenure: Supporting its member in finding more work and offering more support for those new to the editing world.
How has your involvement in ACES, or anywhere else, prepared you for a leadership role in ACES: Before transitioning to freelancing, I worked in fundraising. In my role, I was responsible for creating direct mail and email appeals. Although I was merely an assistant, my boss gave me a lot of freedom and opportunity to learn other parts of fundraising for universities. I attended donor meetings, board meetings, and events, all of which gave me the skills needed to act in a leadership role. Serving on the ACES board would allow me to further hone those skills, particularly as my business grows.
