Volunteer Opportunities

There are many opportunities to contribute to the organization’s work!

Volunteer to serve on the Board of Directors

Open positions on the board of directors are filled by a vote of all members during the annual general meeting, which takes place each spring during the annual conference. Find position descriptions in Section 5.9 of the Bylaws.

Open positions are posted here in advance of the AGM.

Contact the CWCA/ACCR president if you’re interested in running!

Get involved with the BIPOC Caucus!

The CWCA/ACCR BIPOC Caucus has been established to provide ongoing support and networking opportunities, and to develop anti-racism strategies proposed by racialized members. We hope that Black, Indigenous, and racialized CWCA/ACCR members will join the BIPOC Caucus to discuss, strategize, and advance decolonization and anti-racism in writing centre work.

Meetings are held monthly. Your agenda ideas are welcome, so please contact Sheila Batacharya at s.batacharya@utoronto.ca for information about meeting details. Additionally, you can use this anonymous survey (6 questions) to convey your interests and concerns.

Get involved with conference organizing!

The annual CWCA/ACCR is a large task to execute, with many opportunities for members to get involved:

  • become a reviewer
  • design a conference logo and program
  • book (virtual) rooms
  • moderate and facilitate sessions
  • write the call for proposals

Contact the conference co-chairs listed here for more information.
