John Fuzek, founding member of the Rhode Island Songwriters Association (RISA),  
has decided to step down from his role as President after nearly 20 years of involvement and  establishing a presence for RISA in the Rhode Island music scene.  
In 2009, John helped transform RISA by strengthening it with a board of directors, key committees and delegating responsibilities to a slate of officers to allow for a responsive, self sustaining organization. We wish John well in his future endeavors and thank him for his dedication to the organization
Succeeding John as President is Chuck Williams. Other officers are: Vice President, Jan Luby, Treasurer, Joanne Lurgio, Secretary Barbara Lema.
Committee Chairs are:
Performance/Booking - Billy Mitchell
Membership - Joanne Lurgio
Workshops/Critiques - Jan Luby
Mentoring - Daniel James Durand
Grants - Mary Ann Rossoni 
Communications/website - Billy Mitchell
Matters pertaining to the organization or specific functions should be directed to Officers and committee chairs or through the contact page on www.risongwriters.com
We look forward to continuing to support the songwriting craft and live original music for our 140 + members throughout Southeastern New England with new initiatives and opportunities in the future  
Thank you,  
RISA Board of Directors
