Call for Nominations for WPA Executive Board

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

Executive Board members election:

In July 2008 the WPA Executive Board will say goodbye to members Steve Wilhoit, Dominic Delli Carpini, and Carrie Leverenz. We invite nominations for three EB members to replace them.

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 2008.

Nominees should have a demonstrated commitment to the work of the Council and a background in writing program administration. They 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. Nominations are reviewed by the WPA Nominating Committee, which creates a slate for vote by the membership.

If you have questions about serving on the EB, please contact Linda Adler-Kassner, Chair of the WPA Nominating Committee, at

Please send your nominations via e-mail to Linda Adler-Kassner by November 1, 2007. Please use the heading “Executive Board Nomination” in your message. Other Nominating Committee members are Rita Malenczyk and Steve Wilhoit.
