Ideas for the Future of TYCA
Bateman, Eric
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v36 n3 p235-243 Mar 2009
In this article, the author shares that he was proud of his work as the chairman of the National Two-Year College English Association (TYCA). He has a better sense now of the problems facing them, TYCA's capabilities and resources, and what they ought to do. This essay is the author's attempt to pass on that wisdom for the next waves of TYCA members. He proposes the following activities for TYCA's regional and national organizations: (1) Holding a conference for two regions; (2) Sending regional officers to other region's conferences; (3) Strengthening TYCA's presence at the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) convention; (4) Organizing a TYCA summer meeting; (5) Revising TYCA talks; (6) Paying more attention to working conditions; and (7) Cultivating new membership and strengthening member involvement.
