Dr. Carter Elected to AKA Executive Committee

From Tech Today:

Jason Carter, chair of kinesiology and integrative physiology, has been elected to the American Kinesiology Association (AKA) Executive Committee.

“I’m honored that my AKA colleagues have elected me to represent them as a member of the Executive Committee,” says Carter. “AKA is a preeminent society in kinesiology, whose primary aim is to promote and enhance kinesiology as a unified field of study in the United States.”

AKA advocates for kinesiology at both national and international levels, and supports its member departments by providing resource materials and leadership and educational opportunities for university administrators in kinesiology.

“Jason has served on the board of directors for three years, and during that time he was a member of the Membership Committee and currently serves as chair,” says Amelia Lee, executive director of AKA. “As a direct result of his efforts, we are gaining new members on a regular basis. He believes in and supports the AKA mission, and it was because of his hard work and commitment that he was selected to serve on the Executive Committee. Jason is a great contributor, and we are sincerely grateful to have him working with us. He is outstanding in every way.”

Carter is finishing a three-year appointment on the AKA Board of Directors, and his new duties will commence January 1, 2015
