NAPEHE OFFICER/COMMITTEE CHAIR REPORT FORM

PROGRESS REPORT

 

Name of Office:        Editor, Chronicle of Kinesiology and Physical Education in Higher Education

 

Person Submitting Report:             Jimmy H. Ishee

 

Recommendations: My term as editor will end January, 2005. I recommend Dr. Alison Wrynn of California State University ≠ Long Beach for the position of editor. I have discussed this with Dr. Wrynn and she is willing to assume this responsibility. She is currently Associate Editor for Research. I believe she will do an excellent job.

 

Action Required by the Board: The Board needs to approve Dr. Wrynnπs appointment as Editor of the Chronicle of Kinesiology and Physical Education in Higher Education. The appointment will be for three years.

 

Budget Implications:                        None

 

The Chronicle was published three times during 2004 as contracted with Human Kinetics. The February, 2005 issue of the Chroniclehas been submitted to the printer and will be mailed after the holidays. The next deadline for submissions is February 15, 2005 for the May, 2005 issue.
