Update on Annual Meeting

In Business Meeting, KATH Conference on July 29, 2016 by Randolph Hollingsworth Tagged: ,

On Saturday, July 23rd, the KATH Board met in Lexington to review the site for this fall’s Annual Meeting – the W.T.Young Library at the University of Kentucky. Register today online via the KATH website!

Kentucky Humanities Council logoKATH President Megan Mummey reported that she had applied for a  mini-grant ($1000) from the Kentucky Humanities Council at the end of June. She was notified on 7/29 that it was accepted in full. The money will go towards honoraria for the guest speakers at the annual meeting and for student awards to be presented on October 29th.

The group met first at Great Bagel – and all agreed it would be great to have them cater breakfast (coffee and bagels) for early arrivers at the Annual Meeting. Megan also reported on her conversations with Eric Brooks at Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate, regarding the customary Friday night reception on October 28th. Ashland is generously waiving their customary $300 fee for KATH to hold the reception there.

The Board is seeking nominations for President Elect, a Private/Independent Universities Representative, Research Universities Representative, Public Historian Representative, and Librarian/Archivist Representative. If interested, please contact Lorie Maltby (KATH Secretary, lorie.maltby@kctcs.edu) or Megan Mummey (KATH President, megan.mummey@uky.edu; 859-257-6942).

Watch for a newsletter to come out at the end of August – more information about the KATH Board and the upcoming Annual Meeting.  Many thanks to Amanda Higgins, Kentucky Historical Society, for getting our old newsletter going again!
