The Coalition seeks to appoint a new Recorder and a Website & Media Chair for the organization as soon as possible. Please read the descriptions and time commitments below and consider volunteering for these important positions.

The Coalition seeks to appoint a new Recorder for the organization by March 1.

As the “Recorder” (a title which might soon be updated), this individual takes and distributes minutes during Business Meetings and Steering Committee Meetings, drafts meeting agendas, updates committee files and protocols for committee chairs on an annual basis, communicates with the membership about the annual Steering Committee election, and manages the membership database. This individual should be organized and approach the position in the spirit of collaboration. She/he/ze will work closely with the Treasurer, Website Coordinator, and Steering Committee Chair to carry out the mission of the Coalition.

Time commitment: The time commitment for the “Recorder” varies. The most concentrated work takes place between August and October, in preparation of the annual Western History Association conference. There is also a good amount of post-conference work that needs to take place in late-January/early-February.'

Interested? There is a “Recorder Timeline” available if you would like to see the list of duties and how they correlate to a monthly calendar.
Please contact cdcahill@unm.edu or cwwh.west@gmail.com to inquire.

The Coalition seeks to appoint a new Website and Media Chair for the organization by March 1:

The “Website and Media Chair” is a working title for a “working” committee which we anticipate will become a CWWH Standing Committee. This position could be occupied by a current graduate student.

As the Website and Media Chair, this individual will serve as the main coordinator for the Website and Media Committee. She/he/ze will be in charge of updating and maintaining the CWWH website. This person will also collaborate with the rest of the Website and Media Committee with the purpose of distributing information about the Coalition through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms. She/he/ze will work closely with the Recorder, Steering Committee Chair, and Newsletter Editor to carry out the mission of the Coalition and promote its activities.

Time commitment: The time commitment for the Website and Media Chair will vary from month-to-month. The most concentrated work takes place in late-January/early-February to account for website updates regarding award recipients, new committee appointments, the Steering Committee election, etc. There is also a little work that needs to be completed prior to the WHA in which the CWWH Website should reflect Coalition-related activities and meetings that will take place at the conference.

Interested? There is a “Website and Media Chair Timeline” available if you would like to see the list of duties and how they correlate to a monthly calendar.
