KLD OFFICER DUTIES The KLD Administrator and Assistant Administrator work together with volunteers to prepare the Division newsletter, recruit Division speakers for the ATA Annual Conference, and organize the Division's annual networking event. WHY BECOME A DIVISION LEADER? Serving in a Division leadership role provides enormous professional and personal opportunity. In fact, Division officers frequently find themselves becoming more successful in their own careers as they develop additional skills, meet new colleagues, and make useful business connections. WHO CAN BE A CANDIDATE? A qualified candidate must be an Active or Corresponding Member, that is, a voting member of ATA as well as a member of the Korean Language Division. To learn more, click on http://www.atanet.org/membership/membership_type.php If you plan to put a name forward for a nomination, it would be helpful if you could contact the potential nominee first and tell them of your intention. Let them know that a nomination does not guarantee a formal invitation to run for office. Remember that all Division officers serve on a volunteer basis; please do not nominate colleagues who express serious concerns about service or who have conflicting priorities. NOT A VOTING MEMBER YET? An Associate ATA member can become a voting member of the Association through the ATA Membership Review Process. It's a relatively easy request to make with minimal paperwork. And the best part about becoming an ATA voting member? It's a chance to participate in the Association by letting your voice be heard.
