To the Members of the Medieval Academy of America,
I am writing to inform you that third-year Councilor Kathryn A. Smith has stepped down from the Council for personal reasons. In accordance with our bylaws (paragraphs 7 and 11), the Council has approved the following changes effective immediately:
1) Second-year Councilor Anne Latowsky will fill Prof. Smith’s position on the Executive Committee;
2) Prof. Latowsky’s position on the Committee on Committees and as a second-year Councilor will be filled by MAA member Elina Gertsman (Case Western Univ.), who was nominated for this position by the Executive Committee;
3) Prof. Gertsman will serve until the end of Prof. Smith’s term in April 2021.
We are very grateful to Prof. Smith for her service and to Prof. Gertsman for her willingness to take on this temporary role.
