From Sara Vancil
The Board of Directors just had our fall board meeting. I wanted to provide some key updates to the entire membership. Our various committees have been working diligently to fulfill their missions as well as the goals laid out for them in our three-year Strategic Long Range Plan.
- When we decided to stop having our on-site fall training, we convened an ad-hoc task force to look at “drive-in” trainings. This fall we are offering two NASFAA U credential trainings at five different sites. We have over 80 KASFAA members registered! At the winter board meeting, the board will be discussing if we should move from an ad-hoc task force to a permanent Professional Development committee, which would hold trainings of various types throughout the year separate from the spring conference.
- Our Corporate Support committee along with our Associate Member representative have been meeting to discuss how we can make membership and conference attendance most impactful for our vendors. The consensus has been to not move toward a tiered sponsorship plan but rather to focus on equal exposure for all our associate members. They will be looking for a la carte options to go along with the traditional sponsorship available during spring conference. A big thank you to all of our associate members who help support KASFAA!
