About The Committee System
Due to the complexity of its work, KCA divides its tasks among several committees. Each committee has its own meetings and sets its own goals and objectives. This creates considerable variation among the committees and allows KCA to be most effective in approaching many of the issues that we face as a community.
As more volunteers join KCA we are able to create more committees and/or subcommittees to specifically address the vast number of issues confronting us including some that may be timely or seasonal. The main focus of the committees is to find solutions, not just point out problems.
All committees act in an advisory capacity to the board of directors on all matters pertaining to public, community, government and media relations; fundraising; website management; and responding to inquiries from the public, the community, government officials and the media.
You can learn more about our committees and see in detail what they have been working on by using the pull down menu above or read about their programs in the community section by clicking on tags or searching the archives.
