Purpose of the Committee
The Workshop Committee is a standing committee and is responsible for the organization and implementation of the annual AKA administrator workshop. The goal of the workshop is to provide opportunities for current, future and past Kinesiology administrators to meet to discuss topical issues related to administration within the field of Kinesiology.
The Workshop Program Committee is composed of three to five members from member institutions, one of whom shall be designated by the President as Chairperson. The chair of the committee must be a member of the AKA Board of Directors and will be eligible to serve for up to three consecutive years. The members of the committee are appointed by the EC for three year terms that are staggered so that about half of the committee membership changes each year. Committee members accept the responsibility to participate in meetings of the Workshop Programming Committee throughout their entire term of office and to assume committee responsibilities. A majority of the voting members of the Committee shall constitute a quorum. Workshop Program Committee members are not represented by proxy. The EC will try to form a diverse Committee in terms of the types of AKA member institutions and sized departments represented on the Committee. The President-Elect from the EC will serve as a non-voting Liaison to the committee.
The Chairperson of the Committee shall be designated by the President and shall not be eligible to immediately succeed another term as Chairperson. In appointing members to the Committee, consideration should be given to an equitable representation of males and females of the institutional members. All standing committees report to the Executive Committee.
Consistent with Article 12 of the AKA by-laws, committee members shall disclose any conflict of interest with any issues or meeting agenda items at the beginning of a committee meeting. When a conflict exists, the member will abstain from voting and participating in the discussion. The minutes of the meeting shall reflect the disclosure made.
