A Message From Our President
Hello and thank you for visiting the web page for NAKHE (the National Association for Kinesiology in Higher Education). Two very important hallmarks about NAKHE are our commitment to fostering leadership development and networking opportunities for faculty, administrators and graduate students in higher education. I have been a member of NAKHE since 1997 and have served in a variety of leadership roles within the organization. Now I have the ultimate privilege to serve as NAKHE president. I want to thank Jimmy Ishee and all the past presidents for their mentoring, advice and support throughout my career in higher education. I have learned quite a lot from my colleagues in this organization and look forward to continue to serve NAKHE and its members in the same ways that the organization has served and supported me.
The dates for the 2014 NAKHE Conference are January 8 – 12, 2014. We will meet at the Bahia Resort Hotel in San Diego, CA! This will be a very important and historical collaborative congress with delegates from AAHPERD, ACSM, AIESEP and NAK! Start making your plans now to attend and be a part of history. Check out the 2014 NAKHE Conference Flyer for a glance at the schedule (Conference Flyer).
Betty Block is NAKHE Vice President. She and her colleagues are designing an amazing program. I encourage you to come and bring one or two colleagues with you! If you advise doctoral students, please encourage them to submit a proposal for the Joanna Davenport Doctoral Poster Award. If you or one of your colleagues is “new” to higher education; then please submit a proposal for the Hally Beth Poindexter Young Scholar Award. There are plenty of conference slots available for other poster and oral presentations!
Joining and maintaining your membership in NAKHE not only provides access to amazing mentoring and networking opportunities at the annual conference, you also have access to one of the premier scholarly publications in our discipline, Quest! You can learn more about NAKHE’s journal (mission, submission guidelines, etc.) by visiting http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/uqst20/current.
Members of the Board of Directors and ALL the wonderful people who volunteer their time to serve on the NAKHE committees are really looking forward to working together in bringing NAKHE’s mission to life. I look forward to serving you all as NAKHE President and welcome any suggestions you may have about our organization. If you are interested in taking on some leadership roles within the organization; please contact me (email@example.com).
