Call for Nominations for a
Public/Comprehensive Universities Representative
for the KATH Board 2013-14
The Kentucky Association of Teachers of History (KATH) seeks nominations
for a public, comprehensive university representative for its Board.
KATH is a service organization for those concerned about improving the
quality of history education in Kentucky and offers opportunities to
network and to experience professional development events, especially
through our annual conference. In this way we hope to improve the scope
and quality of teaching history throughout Kentucky.
The governing body of the Association is an Executive Committee
consisting of the president, president-elect, and the following elected
representative, chosen from each of these areas: K-8 grades, 9-12 grades,
community college, private/independent college, public/comprehensive
university, research university, public historian, librarian/archivist,
members at-large. (Current board members are listed here.)
The Board’s primary function is to plan the annual conference. Serving on
the Board entails a minimal time commitment and provides an excellent
opportunity to meet other history educators throughout the state. Board
members serve two-year terms. You do not need to have prior experience
with KATH in order to serve. Please share information about KATH and the
opportunities it offers with recent hires in your department.
As stipulated by the KATH Constitution, the membership will approve
the proposed 2013-2014 KATH Board at the business meeting held at the
September 28 conference in Lexington. Nominations, including
self-nominations, are currently being accepted.
Please send your nomination (either self-nomination or peer nomination)
and short c.v. to the KATH Nominations Committee chair and KATH secretary,
Lorie A. Maltby (Henderson Community College), firstname.lastname@example.org.
