TYCA Pacific Coast
ECCTYC, recognizing the importance of a national voice for two-year college teachers of English, participated in the formation of the newly organized Two-Year College English Association (TYCA) of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
TYCA consists of seven regional organizations: Northeast, Southeast, Midwest, Southwest, West, Pacific Northwest, and Pacific Coast. ECCTYC, with over 100 community colleges, composes the Pacific Coast Region. The ECCTYC Board elects a representative to serve on the national TYCA Executive Committee.
TYCA works through the regional organizations to create a vision at the national level for two-year English teachers and to support professional development into the 21st century. As a part of TYCA, ECCTYC gains by influencing a national viewpoint, as well as receiving the many benefits TYCA and NCTE offer.
