Nominations are now open for eight (8) seats on the KBA Board of Directors beginning January 1, 2018. All district directors are elected to serve a two- year term. According to KBA bylaws, no director may serve more than two consecutive terms. KBA directors must be from the ownership or managerial level of a station(s) located in the district. Self nominations are acceptable. The deadline for nominations is Thursday, September 21, 2017.
2017 KBA Chairman, Derron Steenbergen, would like to emphasize how important it is for those districts with expiring directors to nominate new names to serve on the KBA Board of Directors. As a state membership association, the KBA needs YOU to be an active and viable member of our board. Serving on the KBA board allows you to be the voice of broadcasters in your districts.
A stipend and travel expenses are offered for board members that attend in person KBA Board Meetings. Meetings are held quarterly.
Following the deadline of nominations, weighted links to ballots will be sent to management emails for stations in districts where there is a contested race.
