Accepting Applications for Board of Trustees
We are seeking applications for two openings on our Board of Trustees.
One new board member will fill the the position of Christie Fillhardt who has served for the last eight years. By Kentucky statute, members are limited to two four-year terms. Ms. Fillhardt has served on the board since October 2009 and has been vice president of the board since October 2020.
“Christie has been such a strong leader. We are deeply appreciative of the years that she’s given to us and the community on the board.,” said JC Morgan, library director.
Board member Jonathan Cullick is serving the unfulfilled term of Carla Landon. He is eligible to serve two additional terms.
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 Bellevue, Dayton and Fort Thomas areas. The other incoming member will represent the areas of Highland Heights and Cold Spring.
Board members are non-paid positions appointed by the Campbell County Judge-Executive. Current board members are Tracy Smith of Alexandria, president; Christie Fillhardt of Highland Heights, vice president; Jonathan Cullick of Bellevue, treasurer; Jessica Schweitzer of California, secretary; and Maggie Brown of Newport, trustee.
People with occupations or interests in the areas of business, finance and banking are especially beneficial. Trustees are expected to be advocates for the library. Applications for both positions will be accepted until May 31, 2021. The successful nominees will begin their terms of office on Oct. 1, 2021.
Copies of the position description and application form are available below.
Applicants should complete the application and submit a cover letter and resume to the library’s director, JC Morgan.
