Call for Nominations: Executive Board At-Large Representatives from NC and SC

Nominations open until October 31.


The Executive Board invites nominations for two positions: At-Large South Carolina Representative and At-Large North Carolina Representative.


The Carolinas WPA serves as an affiliate of the Council of Writing Program Administrators. All Executive Board members should be members of both the Council of Writing Program Administrators and the Carolinas WPA (or be willing to obtain such membership upon election to the board). The board welcomes people of any professional rank who are involved in higher education writing pedagogy.


Nomination Process

Review the open positions below. You may nominate yourself or someone else with their permission. Those nominated will be asked to submit a brief biographical statement before being included on the ballot. Those elected are expected to attend our “Meeting in the Middle” (the meeting we have each February at UNC Charlotte).


This nomination form requires the nominee’s name, status at their institution (assistant professor, doctoral student, etc.), their institutional affiliation, the position for which you are nominating them, and a brief recommendation.


Once the deadline for nominations has expired (October 31), the board will develop a ballot to be sent via the CarolinasWPA listserv where all who are subscribed to the CarolinasWPA list will have an opportunity to vote on the candidates nominated for each position. Once the voting has ended and the votes have been verified, the Executive Board will announce the new board members and their respective positions.


Online voting ballots will be available approximately November 15 with voting ending on December 12.


Open Positions

1) At-Large Position: South Carolina Representative

2) At-Large Position: North Carolina Representative


These representatives will each serve a term of two years in this role: January 1, 2018–January 1, 2020.


At-Large positions on the board serve multiple purposes. One is to ensure representation from both states (NC/SC). Another is to conduct out-reach within the representative state to recruit other members from NC/SC including community college faculty. At-Large positions help to organize both the Meeting in the Middle and the Annual Fall Retreat. At-Large positions are responsible for managing or otherwise putting together panels for conferences like SAMLA, TYCA, NCETA and/or NCEI. They may contribute in other ways as initiatives arise.
