CWPA 2015 Call for Proposals
July 12-19, 2015
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

Thanks go to the members of the task force that revised this document: Darsie Bowden (chair), Dylan Dryer, Doug Downs, Susanmarie Harrington, Doug Hesse, Beth Brunk-Chavez, Joe Bizup, Kathleen Blake Yancey, Bump Halbritter, and Lisa Mahle-Grisez.
