KCFA Member Update
A few items we wanted to highlight...and one that needs your ATTENTION! Thanks for being a KCFA member!!!
KCFA now has a presence on the internet. The site is live at kycfa.org The initial impetus for the site is twofold: 1. To give us a platform to accept electronic payments for member dues and 2. To give us a landing page for updating you on association business. But the website is very dynamic and easy to update, so we will be looking to use it in numerous ways. Check it out at kycfa.org
At the recent Board of Directors meeting, the Advisory Board recommended several changes to the Association's By-Laws. The proposed changes summarized below, were unanimously approved by the KCFA membership on Nov. 6, via voting that occurred via electronic mail.
- Changes the dues policy to mirror the minimum dues level with that of associate members.
- Changes the audit policy to require a full audit every third year and allows for a compilation audit in other years. Both have to be done by a CPA.
If you have questions or want a copy of the amended bylaws let me know.
2021 Membership Renewal
Per the KCFA bylaws, the annual renewal of membership and the paying of dues is to be completed by January 31, 2021. In order to provide some flexibility to members that may want to pay in the current calendar year we are going to begin the annual renewal process now. A few items of note:
- You can pay your dues and renew your membership online at kycfa.org You can download the certification form, fill it out, scan it in and attach it on the electronic payment page.
- If you are an associate member review this doc: Dues Letter-AM
- Renewal notices will go out from our office on Dec. 15 by regular and electronic mail.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
