CATE Seeks Member Reps to CYRM

CATE is seeking two committed, motivated individuals to join the California Young Reader Medal committee as CATE representatives.

Volunteers should be prepared to read a large quantity of books across many different categories, and should be prepared to travel to three meetings per calendar year. CATE will reimburse airfare or mileage for travel to CYRM meetings.

These individuals will participate in the nomination process and award giving for the CYRM medal recipients for a term of three years.

If interested, contact Annie Gervais, CATE Board member and CYRM Liaison, at  Include “CATE CYRM” in the subject line.

How Do I Know If My Membership Is Current?

CATE Members:

Membership number and expiration date are found above your name on the mailing label of California English. If you haven’t received a copy of California English in the last four months and your address has not changed, chances are your membership has expired.

NCTE membership is NOT the same as CATE membership.
