They also hire and evaluate an Executive Director who runs the day to day operations of the agency following the policies and goals that have been set. They are in charge of committee and sub-committee assignments and carry out “as needed” tasks as suggested by the director or the board.
Term limits apply: Board of Director Executive Board is usually elected at the June meeting and take office on July 1, to coincide with the start of KAT’s fiscal year. The KAT executive Board positions expire at the June board meeting. New members will be recruited as needed. Ideally a core group of board members will have extensive backgrounds with KAT and the special needs communities we serve. The board members represent a dynamic cross section of industries and educational backgrounds.
