Hope the beginning of the fall semester has been smooth with as few problems as possible. I know better than saying problem-free since there is no such thing in WPA world 😊

CWPA 2023 – 2024 Committees
CWPA Calls for Ex-Officio Positions
CWPA Conference Siting Call Application Deadline
After consulting the Executive Board, I’m happy to announce that Holly Hassel will be chairing the CWPA Bylaws Revision Task Force. The task force will consist of two elected Executive Board members and selected CWPA members, representing diverse institutional types and academic ranks. The Task Force will use the final Culture Assessment Report from One Eight Create as the foundation of revising the bylaws to reflect the organization’s values and priorities.
I will keep you updated as the Task Force work progresses.
CWPA will join MLA, CCCC, and other national professional organizations working at the crucial intersection of reading, writing, and language to develop critical AI literacy. These stakeholders will work together to produce policies and guidelines on AI literacy and the appropriate uses of AI in the classroom.
The CWPA 2023 – 2024 Committee Involvement form is ready for your input. Serving on one of our committees is a great way to get to learn more about CWPA mission and goals.
I’d like to clarify a few points about the decision behind selecting those eight committees for this year.
In the coming two weeks, you will see several calls for Ex-Officio positions: Secretary, Treasurer, Communications Coordinator, and Archivist and Historian. I hope you’ll consider applying for one of these leadership positions.
This is a reminder that the CWPA Conference Siting Call for Applications deadline is September 30. If your institution (or multiple institutions) is considering an application to host the conference in 2024 or 2025 but may need more time to complete the application, please let me know.
Don’t let your membership lapse to take advantage of these free events.
