Amy Kinsel, SCC
Shoreline Community College History Professor Amy Kinsel received word in a February 6 letter that she has been elected to the Executive Board of the Organization of American Historians.

"This is a tremendous honor," Kinsel said.

Kinsel's position represents community college History faculty on the nine-member Board of 'the largest professional society dedicated to the teaching and study of American history. 

The mission of the organization is to promote excellence in the scholarship, teaching, and presentation of American history, and to encourage wide discussion of historical questions and equitable treatment of all practitioners of history.'

Kinsel has been active in the Organization of American Historians for many years, presenting papers at a number of meetings and serving on the Committee on Community Colleges (2007-2011), the Annual Meeting Local Arrangements Committee (2009), and the Nominating Board (2007-2010). She will serve on the Executive Board from 2012 through 2015, beginning her term at the conclusion of the Spring 2012 annual meeting.

Kinsel will be expected to attend the 2013-15 annual meetings of the OAH, where the Executive Board and Business meetings are held. Additionally, she says she has been invited as a courtesy to attend the 2012 Executive Board meeting as an observer. Beginning in Fall 2012, Kinsel will also attend separate Executive Board meetings, which are ordinarily held in Indianapolis, where the OAH is headquartered.

Upcoming annual meetings of the OAH are scheduled through 2014: April 19-22, 2012--Milwaukee; Spring 2013--San Francisco; Spring 2014--Atlanta.

Kinsel will serve from April 2012 through Spring 2015, beginning her term at the conclusion of the Spring 2012 annual meeting.

"I am excited to accept this position," Kinsel said, "and I look forward to representing community college historians at the national level."
