About the OWCA Executive Board
The current OWCA Executive Board consists of students, professionals who are currently employed in writing centers, and professionals who are employed in other areas and have writing center backgrounds. You can learn about current OWCA Board members here.
Executive Board meetings are held once per month for an hour and a half. Additional one-hour meetings may be scheduled for training or additional discussion of committee projects. The Board is highly collaborative, organized, and supportive of new ideas. We also like to have fun. We hope that you will join us and help support the future of the OWCA!
