September 2, 2015 represents the end of the 2014-2015 KWA program year. This past year the board and I have worked on governance, making sure our programs/activities/accounting are in compliance with federal and state guidelines. We reviewed funding for concerts, the Fair, membership, plus other events/programs ensuring our financial security and strengthening programs. As part of our fiduciary responsibility, the board approved a “Holdings Policy.” A subcommittee is currently preparing to interview several finance organizations and will submit a recommendation to both the Finance Committee and the full board. More information will be forthcoming.
One of the goals of the Strategic Plan was to investigate moving to a larger office. We signed a two-year lease at 122 Madison. The new space is working well for meetings and for Fair activities. We retained ownership of 1032 S. Alamo and are in the process of finding a tenant.
