Standing Group Elections

Please see this call for nominations from the CCCC Medical Rhetoric Standing Group’s  Associate Chair, Lucía Durá:

We enthusiastically invite you to nominate yourself or someone else to run for two open officer positions in the Medical Rhetoric Standing Group (MRSG): Associate Chair and At-Large Member. Aside from being leadership opportunities, these positions offer a chance for individuals to get to know other members of our wonderful community by working together. Additionally, the MRSG appoints a Graduate Student representative each year. Below is a description of the duties for each role. Know that current officers have found these duties more manageable than they might appear. Each elected officer serves a term of two years. If you have any questions about the duties or eligibility, please e-mail me.
