a. Establishment of Associate Executive Secretary position.
Motion (Berheide, on behalf of Executive Committee). Whereas the
job of Executive Secretary has been expanding over the past few years,
and there is currently no provision for the sudden departure of the
Executive Secretary (a possibility which would make it very difficult
for organization funds and resources to be accessed), the Executive
Committee of the KPSA moves to amend the Constitution to include the
following language, to be placed at the end of Section IV. Officers:
"Associate Executive Secretary.
The Associate Executive Secretary shall assist the Executive Secretary
in the performance of the above duties, and shall have all the powers
pertaining to that office, including serving as a financial account
signatory. The Associate Executive Secretary shall assume the
office of Executive Secretary upon that officer's resignation,
dismissal or inability to hold office, or upon expiration of term in
case no Executive Secretary shall have been elected. The
Associate Executive Secretary shall serve a five-year term of office,
which may be renewed as appropriate."
b. (On passage of above). Motion (Berheide). Nomination of
Saundra Ardrey to serve as Associate Executive Secretary.
c. Graduate Student Awards. Motion (Berheide, on behalf of
Executive Committee). Whereas graduate students have been
valuable contributors to KPSA panels, yet are ineligible for either the
Hughes or Rifai Awards, the Executive Committee moves to modify the
terms of the Hughes Award to include eligibility for both faculty and
graduate students from Kentucky colleges and universities.
VII. Installation of new President, (see III.a. above) effective
at the close of the Saturday sessions.
