Call for Nominations for WPA Executive Board

WPA will hold elections for three Executive Board members this spring.

Executive Board members election:

We will be saying goodbye and thank you to Executive Board members Lauren Fitzgerald, Greg Glau, and Raul Sanchez. We therefore invite your nominations for three Executive Board members to replace those rotating off. The Executive Board oversees the WPA, its events, and its activities; creates policies and procedures for its management; and engages in special projects and initiatives. The new board members will serve for three years, with terms beginning in July of 2006.

Nominees should have a demonstrated commitment to the work of the Council and a background in writing program administration, and should be willing to attend Board meetings at the CCCC and at the WPA summer conference. Self-nominations as well as nominations of others are welcome. To be considered, a nomination should include all contact information, a c.v. (attached or available at a Web site) or a description of the nominee’s work as a WPA, and a statement explaining why the nominee makes a strong candidate for membership on the WPA Executive Board. If possible, it’s best to have the nominee’s permission before submitting the nomination.

All nominators and nominees must be current members of the Council of Writing Program Administrators. Membership may be taken out online at Nominations are reviewed by the WPA Nominating Committee, which creates a slate for vote by the membership.

Please send your nominations to the Chair of the WPA Nominating Committee, Joe Janangelo ( by December 22, 2005. Please use the subject heading “2006 WPA NOMINATIONS.” Nominating Committee members are Chris Anson and Susan Miller-Cochran and Joe Janangelo.
