Call for nominations
April 15, 2013

Hello everyone,
I am the Environmental Communication Division (ECD) representative on the National Communication Association (NCA) Committee on Committees.   The representatives’ role in this group is to get the right people in the right decision-making positions for NCA.
Over the past few years there have been a number of environmental issues raised, from choices of hotels, to printing the program, to questions of social justice.  Having ECD people in leadership positions can help with these types of decisions as well as being good public relations for our division. 
The three positions needing nominees are listed as follows.  Please feel free to self-nominate or nominate someone else who you think would be willing and effective in these leadership positions. 
Email me directly at jennifer.peeples@usu.edu and I will be happy to send on further details on the positions (specific requirements, time commitments, etc.) as well as nomination materials.
