Haiku Northwest Officers

Francine Porad led the Haiku Northwest group from its founding in 1988 to 1992. From 1993 to 2013, Haiku Northwest was led by a single regional coordinator, in association with the Haiku Society of America. In late 2013, however, the group decided to share the workload more evenly by electing a slate of officers, and the regional coordinator became separate from Haiku Northwest. The following officers were elected for 2024. Click any officer’s name to read a brief bio and sample poems. Feel free to contact any officer if you have questions about the organization or our meetings, or contact the web manager if you have questions about the website.
