Thank you to everyone who submitted proposals for the CASDW conference in Ottawa this spring. I have been delayed in sending out decisions about acceptances, but will make every attempt to get these out by Friday, March 20. I am sincerely sorry for the inconvenience. If you have not heard from me by that day, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.

We have a very small window of opportunity to propose a beautiful new space for our writing centre. If any of you have a photograph of a spacious welcoming writing centre to share, please send it—or a link to it—to me at email@example.com. Of course, I’ll be happy to acknowledge your help!
Thank you very much for your assistance!

Kathy Absolon has agreed to be our keynote speaker, and we already have received many interesting proposals for presentation. Please note that CWCA has decided to extend the deadline for proposals for the CWCA conference to Jan. 15th, 2015, so if you haven’t yet sent one in, please consider doing so now. CWCA welcomes proposals in French and also from tutors, so please encourage your tutors to consider sending in a proposal.
