Planning 2014 Annual Meeting

In Business Meeting on December 10, 2013 by Randolph Hollingsworth Tagged: ,

On one of Kentucky’s most wintery days this year, Friday December 6th, the KATH Board met to plan the upcoming annual meeting. Those Board members present for the brief teleconference were: Pattie Dillon (KATH President), Cheryl Caskey (Public Historian rep), Randolph Hollingsworth (KATH web admin), and Andrea Watkins (Public/Comprehensive University rep). The following items were discussed:

  1. Location for conference
    Spalding University in Louisville will be the location for the 2014 KATH fall conference (if other locations are possible, please notify Pattie Dillon by December 16).
  2. Conference Theme
    Civil Rights was suggested as next year’s conference theme. Again, if you would like to suggest a different theme, please let Pattie know by December 16.
  3. Suggested Keynote speakers
    Instead of having one keynote speaker, we would ask for a panel presentation. After the panel presentation, each of the speakers would then have their own individual break-out session.
  4. Break-out sessions
    There will be 5 break-out sessions in the morning and again after lunch. Each of the key note speakers will have an individual break-out session. The two other additional break-out sessions will focus on pedagogy.
  5. Grant
    Once the details for the conference are finalized, Pattie will submit a grant application to the Kentucky Humanities Council.
  6. Next meeting
    Possible date for next phone conference, week of January 27-31. Pattie will again send out request for dates and times that will work the best for everyone’s schedule. At the next meeting, Pattie will request committee members to sign up for specific sub-committees. A face-to-face meeting in Louisville on site will occur in March or April.
