Manual Updates – The KEHA Manual Handbook and Appendix have been updated and the revised editions are now online. Links to the manual can be found on the home page Quick Links and from within the Member Resources tab. The website includes complete files for each section, the tables of contents for each section, and a separate PDF file with only the pages that were changed this year. As you review each table of contents, please note that the pages with updates are in bold. Due to budget constraints, each county will receive one printed copy of the revised manual pages only in July.

2021-2022 KEHA Reports Due for Counties – Now is the time to report county Volunteer Service Unit (VSU) hours, as well as county Program of Work report forms for the eight educational chairmanships. There are instructions and links at https://keha.ca.uky.edu/content/impacts. County VSUs are filed on the revised paper forms and county Program of Work reports are filed via Qualtrics survey. For each county Program of Work survey submitted, the final screen will offer the option to print. A printed copy should be mailed or emailed to the Area Chairman. All county reports are due Aug. 15. Next, area VSU reports are due Sept. 15.

2022-2023 Theme-Based Officer Training Materials – KEHA officer training materials are now available on the KEHA website. Materials are specific to the 2022-2023 KEHA year and the theme “We’ve Got You Covered.” Materials include a PowerPoint presentation, facilitator’s guide, installation ceremony, dates to remember handout, evaluation, and other resources. Please review and use these materials as best fits with your county and/or area officer training sessions.

Recreation, Inspiration and Book List – As we shared previously, the KEHA Board voted to discontinue annual publication of the KEHA Recreation and Inspiration booklets. A monthly roll call and thought for the month will be provided with the theme-based officer training materials. Compilation of the annual Book List is continuing, and the 2022-2023 version is now available on the KEHA website under Club Materials.

Leadership Academy – The second KEHA Leadership Academy will take place on March 1-3, 2023, at Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park. The goal of the academy is to strengthen leadership skills for emerging leaders within the organization and increase the pool of leaders available to hold county, area, and state level elected and appointed positions. The academy will recruit up to 30 participants. Each area is encouraged to provide the names of two delegates and one alternate. The application deadline will be Oct. 1 and participants will be notified Nov. 1. The application and other details are coming soon.
