Save the Date: CWPA Breakfast at CCCC in Tampa!

CWPA members,

Don't forget the annual CWPA breakfast at C's! As usual, it will be held the Thursday morning of the conference before the opening session--this year, that's Thursday morning, March 19. We haven't yet finalized where it will be, but if you're up for good conversation, reconnecting with colleagues, making new contacts, and hearing more about the summer 2015 conference in Boise, save time to attend the breakfast. We hope to see you!
Rita Malenczyk, President

CWPA Conference in Normal a Great Success!

Thanks to all of you who attended the CWPA Conference at Illinois State University from July 17-20. It was a fabulous conference: the local committee, led by Joyce Walker, made it one of the most comfortable and welcoming conferences we've had in a while, and the plenary speakers--Doug Hesse, Melissa Ianetta, and Duane Roen-- stimulated lively discussion, as did the paper and panel presenters. Thanks, too, to our workshop leaders, Chuck Paine and Linda Adler-Kassner; and our institute leaders, Bob Broad, Diane Kelly-Riley, Beth Boquet, and Neal Lerner.
