The ECWCA Board is now looking for hosts for the 2013 East Central Writing Center Association Conference. Traditionally, the ECWCA Conference is held over two consecutive days‚ typically a Friday and Saturday‚ during March or early April. The conference attracts about 200-300 writing center tutors and administrators from the region. The board works closely with the conference hosts throughout the entire process. Most hosts are able to fund the conference with seed money from the board and from conference registrations; hosts do not need to fund the conference from their own coffers. Schools that are in the same city or nearby can also apply to be co-hosts to split the responsibilities.
If you are even the slightest bit curious or just would like more information about hosting, please contact the current president Jackie Grutsch McKinney (firstname.lastname@example.org) who can provide you with details, encouragement, the application, and very helpful conference planning guide.
