The CWPA Officers and Executive Board wish you the best in these challenging times. Stay safe.
The Council of Writing Program Administrators is pleased to announce this year’s award recipients. Ordinarily, these awards would be announced at our annual conference in July, but since COVID-19 has made it necessary to postpone the conference until next year, we are announcing them this way. We encourage you to read these excellent works! Congratulations to this year’s award recipients, and congratulations to all the nominees as well.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the recent Executive Board election--those who voted, those who nominated, and most especially those who agreed to stand for election. We are happy to welcome Kat Daily O'Meara, Sarah Snyder, and Julia Voss to the Executive Board. Their term will begin on July 1 and last three years.
CWPA is pleased to offer a workshop focused on best practices for online writing instruction. Jessie Borgman and Casey McArdle will be drawing from their book Personal, Accessible, Responsive, Strategic: Resources and Strategies for Online Writing Instructors to help WPAs develop plans to keep the quality of their writing programs high if they are asked to shift to online delivery.
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). Therefore, we ask your help in electing three new Executive Board members, each of whom will serve a three-year term beginning in July 2020.
