The OHA Diversity Committee Needs Your Opinion!
In order to better serve the membership, we need to understand the issues facing this organization. Please let us know what Diversity means to you and how the needs of a diverse membership are or are not being met. We hope to present the results at the Salt Lake City Conference.
It’s that time again, SOHA members: Board nominations are upon us!
Your current Co-Presidents, Juan D. Coronado and Marcie Gallo, are completing their terms of office as of July 1, 2019. As is the SOHA custom, current 1st Vice President Jennifer Keil has agreed to assume the office of SOHA President. In addition, current 2nd Vice President Farina King is willing to assume the duties of 1st Vice President.
Also willing to remain in office are Carlos Lopez, Arizona Delegate, and Rachael Cassidy, New Mexico Delegate. This does not preclude other SOHA members from being nominated or self-nominating for these important positions.
Some who have served our organization well for the last few years will step aside. We offer our sincere thanks to Caryll Batt Dziedziak (Treasurer), Barbara Tabach (Secretary), Virginia Espino (California Delegate), Stefani Evans (Nevada Delegate), Midge Dellinger (Student Representative), and Bridget Groat (Native American Representative)
We now have several vacancies for Board positions and welcome nominations and self-nominations. Please see pages 8 and 9 of our Summer 2019 Newsletter for descriptions of duties for the positions. All nominees must be current members of SOHA.
To nominate yourself or someone else (with their consent, of course), please send your name and contact information, along with two sentences on why you or the person you are nominating are qualified and interested in being on the SOHA Board of Directors, by August 1 to: SOHA Nominating Committee Chair Sarah Moorhead,firstname.lastname@example.org
