TYCA-Midwest Needs You!

TYCA-Midwest Needs You!

TYCA-MW is seeking nominations for new executive board members, NCTE representative, and members of the elections committee! Serving on the TYCA-MW Board is rewarding and fun. The board helps to plan the annual conference, recruit new members, and advocates for English teachers at the national conference.

If you know someone who might be interested in serving, please pass this email along, or send his or her email address to one of the board members listed on the web page.

Executive Board Positions (2)

Candidates will run for one of two open positions on the board at the annual conference in October. Candidates are elected to the board and then the various positions (Chair, Vice Chair, Site Coordinator, Treasurer, Secretary, and Membership Chair) are decided at the Saturday meeting following the conference.

Board members are expected to meet twice a year. Members meet during the fall at the Thursday Board meeting, before the conference, and also during the conference. Members also meet in spring, but if funding is an issue, he or she can attend via video conference.

NCTE Representative (1)

The nominations committee is also seeking candidates for the position of NCTE representative. This is a voting position on the board and comes with considerable travel responsibilities.

Elections Committee (1)

Members of the elections committee work in a small group to recruit candidates for open positions on the executive board and run the voting and election at the fall conference. Elections committee members are encouraged to attend Executive Committee board meetings in the spring and fall, but these are not required.

If you are interested in running for any of the positions listed above, send your name and a 250-word biographical statement to the following board members:
* Lauren Rice, [email protected]
* Ella Davis, [email protected]
* Lindsay Simpson, [email protected]

The biographical statement should include current school, position, past involvement in TYCA or other professional organizations, the reason for wanting to serve on the executive board, research interests, other professional accomplishments, or other experiences or skills that would be valuable to the board.

We hope you want to be a part of this great organization!
