Secretary Report – Todd and Tara suggested that the Secretary’s responsibilities be modified to just taking notes at the
official business meeting (the morning meetings). It was also discussed that the official business of the KPBA does not

they want included in the newsletter should email it to the secretary and it should be 5 sentences or less. Frank made a

unanimously approved and will take effect January 1st, 2016.
