Morna McEachern, Social Work, and Program Manager for Pacific Northwest Canadian Studies Consortium (PNWCSC), has recently been invited to join the board of directors of the Association of Canadian Studies in the United States (ACSUS) and to serve as its secretary. This is a particularly interesting and challenging time for ACSUS, due to the total, global elimination of the “Understanding Canada” grants by the Canadian government. These grants were a primary source of support for ACSUS and both the board and the executive director are working vigorously and creatively to maintain the vital work that ACSUS does for Canada and Canadian Studies. It is a wonderful honour that Morna has been invited to serve at this critical time.
The Canadian Studies Center is an institutional member of ACSUS.
