The IWCA is currently seeking nominations for Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, three At-Large Representatives, a Two-Year Institutions Representative, and two Peer Tutor Representatives.

The IWCA Nominations Committee hopes to recruit a slate of candidates from a range of institutions and across a variety of identities to run for this year’s election. The IWCA Board is made richer when it is comprised of writing center professionals who represent the broader international writing center community. We encourage nominations and self-nominations of Black, Asian-American, Latinx, Native American, and Pacific Islander writing center professionals; members of the LGBTQ+ community; individuals with disabilities; our colleagues at international writing centers; and writing center folk at two-year colleges, secondary schools, HBCUs, HSIs, and tribal colleges.

  • conference and event planning (annual conference, the Summer Institute, and the Collaborative);
  • organizational priorities like those being addressed in the Social Justice Task Force and the Accessibility Task Force;
  • Mentor Matching program;
  • decisions about grants and awards;
  • financial planning;
  • And more!
