It’s far from Mission: Impossible so take a few minutes and get these two assignments done


It’s that time of year when things start hopping to close out one year and get ready for another. And this is where you come in.


  1. CONTESTS REGISTRATION — We’ve been preaching it for weeks now. Take ONE minute and get your newspaper registered for the KPA Advertising and KPA News contests. The deadline to enter is Friday, October 18, but if you haven’t registered you can’t do anything. Right now we have right at 45 newspapers registered and three have already uploaded entries. Come on, seriously, take the minute and get ‘er done. Just go to and you’ll get that task out of the way. The list of newspapers registering already i at the end of this segment.
  2. RATE AND DATA SHEET — We’re trying to get ready for 2020 and one of the biggest jobs is getting information together for the 2020 KPA Directory. But we need you to fill out the Rate and Data form and then hit SUBMIT so that we have up-to-date information about your newspaper to put in the directory. We know you’re working on ad rates, color charges and subscription prices so you can delay getting us that information. But the general information about your newspaper — name/personnel, website URL, publication day(s), paid circulation, phone and fax numbers, mailing address, page sizes…all of that is published in the directory. So go to, select the membership division your newspaper is in and then fill out the form. When you get as far as you can with what you know, go to the end of the form and hit SUBMIT. We’ll hound you about rate information later.


For some of you — newspapers in District 3, 4, 5, 6 and 13 — there’s another assignment. Check your email for information about the KPA Board nominations being open for a full three-year term, beginning January 2020. Those counties involved in this election cycle include: Allen, Anderson, Barren, Bourbon, Breckinridge, Bullitt, Butler, Daviess, Edmonson, Fayette, Franklin, Grayson, Hancock, Hardin, Harrison, Hart, Henderson, Henry,  Jefferson, LaRue, Logan, Marion, McLean, Meade, Metcalfe, Monroe, Nelson, Nicholas, Ohio, Oldham, Scott, Shelby, Simpson, Spencer, Trimble, Union, Warren, Washington, Webster and Woodford.
