Committees

 

Individuals may join any committee without prerequisites, but continued membership in any committee is dependent on active contribution to the projects of the committee as evidenced in the submission of weekly committee reports. Members are also expected to be consistent in their weekly quota of article comment posts (an average of 5 comments per week). And members must have their first Article Project Proposal approved by the end of the sixth week of the semester, and they must have their first article published by the end of the eighth week of the semester. Failure to maintain these requirements will result in a member’s removal from membership in that committee. Readmittance to any committee is contingent on regaining the status for ongoing membership.

The purpose of the Outreach Committee is to extend the products of our organization to interested parties who might benefit from our historical research, writing, and media productions.
