November Meeting & Updates

Hello everyone! Our November meeting will be on Tuesday, November 15th from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Here is the Zoom link.


Firstly, we will be holding an election at the November meeting for President of KMLA. We are still seeking self-nominations for President. Please send nominations to Cayla Robinson at Cayla.Robinson17@uky.edu.


As a reminder, below are the duties of President according to KMLA Bylaws:


The President shall perform all duties usually associated with the office including:

  1. Preside at regular and special meetings;

  2. Send meeting announcements and a call for agenda items;

  3. Set meeting agendas;

  4. Confirm committee membership and appoint chairs;

  5. Make appointments to fill vacancies in offices and committees that occur during the year;

  6. Serve as ex-officio member of all committees.

Reflections from Outgoing President

Some of the benefits of being the president of KMLA include leading our state association in new partnerships, planning conferences, professional development opportunities, and getting to know my colleagues from across the state. The time commitment is not a lot and the experience is invaluable. If you are looking for leadership opportunities to help move our state association forward, this service position would be a great addition your CV. If you have any questions about this position, please don’t hesitate to contact Stephanie at stephanie.henderson@uky.edu


Next, we are hosting our showcase after elections. Showcase presentations are 5 minute updates on a project you are working on or something you would like to discuss with the group. Visual not required. Here is the form to fill out to present at the showcase: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdlNbD_70AFEFqkiSOqpMn2ivATwt40oOpsUsWP751Sb6rFsQ/viewform?usp=sf_link


Finally, we still need one more volunteer for the Joint Spring Conference Planning Committee. Please email me or Stephanie to volunteer.


Thank you, looking forward to meeting next month!


Cayla, Secretary
