Accepting Applications for Board of Trustees

We are seeking applications for two openings on our Board of Trustees.

The new board members will fill the positions of two members who have served for the last eight years. By Kentucky statute, members are limited to two four-year terms.

The two board members who will be leaving the Board of Trustees are Cathy Howard and Paul Johnson. Ms. Howard has served on the board since October 2012 and has been president of the board since October 2013. Mr. Johnson was appointed to fill an unexpired term in January 2012 and then completed two terms, serving as the treasurer.

“Cathy and Paul have been huge assets to the board through the years. Both have led the library through difficult decisions and improvements to service. I will miss their leadership,” said JC Morgan, library director.

By law, the board must maintain a balanced geographical representation of all areas of the county. In keeping with the law, one of the incoming members will represent the Fort Thomas area. The other incoming member will represent the southern areas of the county including Camp Springs, Melbourne and California.

The Board of Trustees are non-paid positions appointed by the Campbell County Judge-Executive. Current board members are Ms. Howard of Fort Thomas, president; Tracy Smith of Alexandria, vice president; Mr. Johnson of California, treasurer; Christie Fillhardt of Highland Heights, secretary; and Jonathan Cullick of Bellevue, trustee.

People with occupations or interests in the areas of business, finance and banking would be especially beneficial. Trustees are expected to be advocates for the library. Applications for both positions will be accepted until May 31, 2020. The successful nominees will begin their terms of office on October 1, 2020.

Copies of the position description and application form are available below and at each of our branches.

Applicants should complete the application and submit a cover letter and resume to the library’s director, JC Morgan.
