One new member will fill the seat of Christie Fillhardt, vice president since October 2020. Fillhardt has served the board for eight years. (Members are limited to two four-year terms by Kentucky statute.)
“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.
The other open position is currently held by treasurer Jonathan Cullick. 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 within the county. As such, one incoming member will represent the Bellevue, Dayton and Fort Thomas areas; and the other Highland Heights and Cold Spring.
Board members are non-paid positions appointed by the Campbell County Judge-Executive. Alongside Fillhardt and Cullick – who reside in Highland Heights and Bellevue, respectively – current trustees are Tracy Smith of Alexandria, president; Jessica Schweitzer of California, secretary; and Maggie Brown of Newport, trustee.
Individuals with experience in the areas of business, finance and banking would be especially beneficial. Applications can be found at www.cc-pl.org/board-of-trustees-2021 and will be accepted through May 31, 2021. Terms of office begin on Oct. 1, 2021. Trustees are expected to be library advocates.
Along with completing the application, those interested should submit a resume and cover letter to library director JC Morgan. He can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at Campbell County Public Library, 3920 Alexandria Pike, Cold Spring, KY 41076.
