I propose we amend the Association Bylaws, to remove the Board position of Convention Coordinator and replace that position with Communications Coordinator. The Board felt that dumping the duties of the convention on one person was unfair, so the Board worked together to coordinate this year’s convention. The Communications Coordinator would be responsible for: (a) maintaining the Facebook page and KBA website (to include the articles and ads we would normally put in a newsletter); and (b) pulling together the convention brochure. Proposed amendment to Bylaws: V. BOARD AND OFFICERS A The board, charged with the management of this Association, shall consist of twelve (12) voting members including: the president-elect, president, (convention coordinator)REMOVE, communications coordinator, treasurer, secretary, plus the immediate past president and six (6) members at large, with effort to represent the membership of KBS. All board members shall be I good standing of the Association. . . D. The officers shall be president-elect, president, immediate past president, treasurer, (convention coordinator)REMOVE, communications coordinator and secretary. Presidents shall be elected every year, treasurer on odd years, (convention coordinator)REMOVE communications coordinator on odd years, and secretary on even years. G. The duties of the officers shall be as follows: CONVENTION COORDINATOR: 1. Work in close cooperation with the president 2. Perform such duties as assigned by the president. COMMUNICATIONS COORDINATOR: 1. Maintain the KBA Facebook page and website (to include ads and articles typically contained in a newsletter). 2. Produce the convention brochure, with teachers and classes as chosen by the Board.
