We have created two Google Forms (online surveys) that present the revisions and their rationales and gather feedback in advance of the 2017 AGM at our conference. There will be limited time for discussion during the AGM.
We welcome responses from all who consider themselves affiliated with CSSR.
Please try to respond on these forms before May 25, since we may need some time to compile and review the responses prior to the AGM.
For more information, see the original post April 16 at http://cssr-scer.ca/for-review-cssr-scer-constitutional-revisions/

A new issue of Survive & Thrive: Journal for Medical Humanities and Narrative as Medicine has been published. It includes articles that may be of interest to rhetoric scholars (see a selected list below).
Rhetoricians may also wish to consider submitting research articles and creative works in the area of the Rhetoric of Medicine / Narrative Rhetoric.
See the journal’s website at http://repository.stcloudstate.edu/survive_thrive/
“Survive & Thrive: Journal for Medical Humanities and Narrative as Medicine aims to provide opportunities for sharing research, artistic work, pedagogical dialogue, and the practice of Medical Humanities and Narrative as Medicine. Although it is linked to the Survive and Thrive Conference and Arts Festival, the Journal serves its own mission in education and the practice of Humanities as they relate to illness, injury, and trauma.”
“Survive and Thrive (S & T) is an open access, digital, peer reviewed journal, supported by St. Cloud State University Digital Archives.”
SELECTED Articles in Volume 3, Issue 1 (2017)
