CALL FOR PROPOSALS: LOCAL SITE COORDINATOR/S
RHETORIC SOCIETY OF AMERICA
FIFTH BIENNIAL INSTITUTE, 2013
The Rhetoric Society of America seeks nominations and self-nominations to serve as Local Site Coordinator/s for the Fifth Biennial Institute, to occur in the summer of 2013.
Kent State University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Penn State University hosted the 2005, 2007, and 2009 Institutes, respectively, and the 2011 meeting will be held at University of Colorado in Boulder. The content and format of the 2013 Institute will be planned by the Institute Steering Committee, appointed by the RSA Board. The Steering Committee will work closely with the Local Site Coordinator/s on logistics, including the establishment of dates for the Institute.
Complete proposals should include  identification of the individual/s who will serve as primary contact/s with the Steering Committee;  indication of the specific site/s that would accommodate up to 400 participants in plenary sessions and smaller break-out groups for a week’s duration;  an explanation of the resources—faculty and student volunteers, institutional support, etc.—that would commend the prospective Local Site Coordinator/s as a strong partner for the Steering Committee.
Proposals should be submitted electronically to Gregory Clark, RSA Executive Director, by September 1, 2010: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Site Selection Committee will review proposals and make recommendations to the RSA Board of Directors during the Board’s Fall 2010 meeting.
Direct any questions to Gregory Clark at email@example.com.
