As WPAs, we know how important it is to build connections with others in our programs, on our campuses, and with our colleagues. CWPA has four great opportunities to make new connections and reconnect with old friends coming up.
First, the WPA conference is a great opportunity to come together with colleagues from across the country to talk with and learn from each other about the many critical issues that affect us as program directors and instructors. Proposals are still being accepted for WPA 2011, so submit today!
Second, stop by the WPA booth at CCCC! This is a great opportunity to learn more about CWPA, get to know board and committee members, and be welcomed into a fantastic organization.
The WPA Breakfast at CCCC is another terrific opportunity to connect with friends new and old. A few seats are left for the Breakfast, so get your tickets soon!
Finally, CWPA's participation in and roll out of The Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing represents an important effort by CWPA, NCTE, and the National Writing Project to strengthen connections among our organizations and try to connect with discussions about writing and writers occuring in many contexts. Copies of the Framework are available from the link above; we will also have copies of the document and of strategies for using the Framework in your local context available at the WPA booth at CCCC. We'd love to talk with you!
