July 2023 News and Notes
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. Each county will be receiving one printed copy of the revised manual pages only in the near future. If additional copies are needed, they can be printed from the website.
2022-2023 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 on the reports webpage. County VSUs are filed on the paper forms and county Program of Work reports are filed via online Qualtrics survey. For each county Program of Work survey submitted, the final screen will offer the option to print/download. 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.
