We have just learned that Tessa Nunn, our Graduate Student Representative, expects to complete her studies in the spring of 2021 and thus will not run for re-election. As we send our warmest congratulations to Tessa, we must now search for her replacement.
The Graduate Student Representative brings to the attention of the Executive Committee, via the President, concerns of graduate students relative to the mission of WIF. She/he/they publicize/s WIF and its activities to student colleagues at graduate student conferences and in social media to recruit new members. She/he/they organize/s a bi-annual writing exchange among WIF graduate students and early career scholars.
The Graduate Student Representative serves for two years, but may not continue beyond the year of completion of the terminal degree. Candidates for the position of Graduate Student Representative must be sponsored by a WIF member.
We ask that you send your statements, outlining your qualifications and your goals for WIF, for publication in the Fall Newsletter and/or on the WIF Listserv, to both members of the Nominating Committee (Annabelle Rea, email@example.com and Colette Trout, firstname.lastname@example.org), at the latest by August 15, 2020. Please note that there is a 100-word limit for candidate statements (this is an overall limit, including both qualifications and goals).
