The committee monitors employment conditions and professional opportunities, recommends programs, services and best employment practices, and advocates for non-tenure-track members of the history profession. If you are interested in helping the committee to pursue its mission, please contact Kara Hamm at the OAH (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more about it.
