Getting Back More than I Gave
Mitchler, Sharon
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v37 n2 p195-197 Dec 2009
In this latest in a series of commentaries from former chairs of the national Two-Year College English Association (TYCA), the author, TYCA chair (2004-2006) and the 2009 winner of the Nell Ann Pickett Service Award, shares her views on becoming involved in local, regional, and national professional activities. Her time in national leadership gave her opportunities on her home campus, at the regional level, and at the national level in TYCA, CCCC, and NCTE that she could not have predicted on that day in 1998 when she agreed to serve as the PNW national representative. She was surprised to find that simply gaining experience in how to participate in and run organized meetings would pay off on her own campus.
