Invisible Work: Service to the Profession

As a member of the College Composition and Communication’s Committee on Computers in Composition and Communication (7Cs Committee),  the period between the CCCC and Computers and Writing conferences is often busy committee-wise.

For a number of years now I have coordinated the Technology Innovator Award, which is awarded at the annual Computers and Writing conference. With the nomination deadline approaching (April 28), I’m sending out nomination reminders and preparing incoming nominations for the awards committee. This year I’m also coordinating a 15+ person working group to redesign and update a too-neglected website.

Like a lot if not most service work, much of this is done out of the spotlight.
