서주원 드림

Dear AATK members,



Based on the revised bylaw, we elected three new board members at the 2013 Annual Meeting held at Michigan State University (June 29, 2013). For the period of 2014-2017, a total of three new board members are to be elected to replace two outgoing Board Members, Hangtae Cho (University of Minnesota) and Hi-Sun Kim (University of Chicago), in addition to one new board member.




The Executive Board Members serve without compensation for a term of three years.


Responsibilities include:

(1) representing the AATK membership

(2) advising activities, affairs, and the management of assets of the Association

(3) participating in activities and projects, such as:

- attending two annual board meetings in June (in conjunction with theAATK Annual Meeting) & November (in conjunction with the ACTFL Convention)

- reviewing conference abstracts and workshop proposals

- selecting prize awardees

(4) maintaining liaison with other professional organization and participating in recruiting and fund-raising.




In order to be considered for election to the Board, candidates must:

(1) be currently an AATK member; (2) have experience of teaching Korean or related subjects for five years full time; and (3) have attended the AATK annual workshop and conference at least three times (not necessarily consecutive years).




The nomination process is composed of the following two steps:


1. Any regular member can nominate a candidate (including themselves). Members can directly submit self- or other-nomination to the Election Committee of the Executive Board, Dr. Hi-Sun Kim (hisun@uchicago.edu) and Dr. Mina Lee (minausc@gmail.com), byJune 1.


In the case of self-nomination, a nominee should submit to the committee: (1) his/her updated CV and (2) a personal statement including the history of his/her AATK participation, his/her

activities and services relating to the AATK in the past and prospective contributions to the AATK.


If nominating another member, a recommender, with the permission of the nominee, should submit to the committee: (1) the nominee’s CV and (2) a recommendation letter including the nominee’s history of AATKparticipation, his/her services relating to the AATK in the past and prospective contributions to the AATK.


2. The Executive Board reviews nominations and decides on a shortlist of candidates to be put on the ballot. The shortlist can have twice as many candidates as the number of vacant positions on the Board, and therefore as many as 6 candidates for the 2014 election. 



Selection Criteria

- demonstrate commitment to the AATK missions

- articulate visions for the AATK

- balanced representation of the membership




AATK members will cast votes on the candidates by secret ballot during the annual business meeting scheduled on June 21 (Sat) at 1:00 at Boston University. Those candidates who get the highest numbers of votes will be elected as board members. The elected board members must be approved by the general membership present at the annual business meeting.
