Dear Members of RSA,
I'm writing today with exciting news. The RSA ballots have been returned, and I have the pleasure of congratulating the following scholars for their election to the Rhetoric Society of America's Board of Directors.
These five individuals will become members of the Board on July 1 and will serve in that capacity until June 2024.
In addition to congratulating these scholars, I want to thank everyone who agreed to be nominated for a Board of Directors position, especially Natalie Bennie, Nell Edgar, David Holmes, Jo Hsu, and Mary Stuckey who also stood for election. In the coming months, we will need the assistance of many within the Society as we make our way out of these challenging times. If you are contacted for a committee or leadership responsibility, please consider joining us in that service.
With the addition of our new members, the July 2020 to June 2022 RSA Board of Directors will be:
Michelle Ballif, President
Vanessa Beasley, President-elect
Karrieann Soto Vega
Kirt Wilson, Immediate Past-President
I hope that you are well and adjusting, as necessary, to the ups and downs of social distancing and online education. We, the Board of RSA, look forward to being a part of your professional life in the next year, whatever that year might entail.
