SIG becomes a Standing Group, New Officers

Our long-standing “Special Interest Group” (SIG) in Disability Studies, through CCCC, became the CCCC Standing Group in Disability Studies (SGDS) at the beginning of Summer 2013. This means that we have a “sponsored panel” each year at CCCC, a regular meeting time (as we had before), and standing status (so we don’t have to re-apply each year). Here is the SGDS description and the bylaws.

We also have a new co-Chair of the group, Tara Wood, and a new Elections Officer, Dale Katherine Ireland. Amy Vidali is staying on as co-Chair (hello!) and Margaret Price is rotating out, though we won’t let her go very far! The next election will be after CCCC in 2014, so stay tuned!
