About IWCA / Governance / Bylaws
International Writing Centers Association Bylaws
Drafted by members of the 2013 and 2014 Constitution, Policies, and Procedures Committee Nathalie Singh-Corcoran, Chair; Shareen Grogan, Andrew Jeter, Alanna Bitzel, Kerri Jordan, and Roberta Kjesrud
Revised in 2016 by members of the 2015-2016 Constitution, Policies, and Procedures Committee, with input from general Board members.
Important Notes from the Constitution Policies and Procedures Committee
1. Bylaws capture procedures through which constitutional principles are implemented. As procedures are by nature fluid, they are traditionally revised by an organization’s board (see the National Council of Teachers of English and the Conference on College Composition and Communication).
2. The 2013 International Writing Centers Association (IWCA) constitution authorized for the first time bylaws to be written and modified as needed by the Board.
3. The Bylaws are keyed to the Constitution. Articles and Sections in the Bylaws correspond to the same-numbered Article or Section in the Constitution. Not all Articles and Sections require a bylaw and are therefore not listed here.
