by Mike Conway, 1st Vice President
As an all-volunteer organization, AJHA only succeeds because of the generous donation of time and expertise by its members. Right now, we have several opportunities for members to get involved in our group. If you have served on committees before and are looking for a new challenge, or if you haven’t been involved beyond membership and conferences, we’d like to hear from you.
In the current academic climate, we know there is added pressure to concentrate your service work on your home institutions. That is why we are very appreciative of everyone who gets involved in AJHA to keep the various committee efforts and the entire organization moving forward.
For those who are looking to guide one of our committees, we will soon (or now) have openings in Research, Membership, Graduate Students, and History in the Curriculum.
Committees that are looking for new members include Public Relations, Oral History, Membership, Education, and Service Awards.
If you don’t really know where to start, please let us know and we can find a position that matches your interests and time availability.
Let us know if are attending the conference in Memphis this month so we can talk to you in person about AJHA.
If you’d like to get involved, or have questions, you can contact me at email@example.com or AJHA 2nd Vice President Tracy Lucht at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also go to the AJHA Committee web page and contact the committee chairs directly.As always, thanks to all of you who keep AJHA strong.
