Call for Nominations

Executive Board, Council of Writing Program Administrators

In July 2020, the CWPA Executive Board will say goodbye and thank you to three members who are ending their board terms: Sheila Carter-Tod (Virginia Tech), Genevieve Garcia de Mueller, (Syracuse University) and Staci Perryman-Clark (Western Michigan University). We therefore invite nominations for three new Executive Board members, each of whom will serve a three-year term beginning in July 2020. Please note that while all nominations are welcome and will receive due consideration, increased diversity among our leadership is a priority to which the organization has committed itself. Nominations of individuals from underrepresented groups and individuals who can lend diverse perspectives are strongly encouraged.
