Publishers/GMs of full member newspapers should have received a letter, KPA Bylaws amendment language and a ballot last week on allowing Online Publications/Newspapers to be full (voting) members of KPA. As stated in the letter, we have a membership category for Online Publications but it does not allow those publications any voting rights. Nor would it allow them to enter KPA contests.
The ballot returns are coming in about as expected so this is another plea to get your vote(s) in if you are the publisher/GM of a voting member newspaper. The deadline for your vote to be received at KPA — by mail, email to me or FAX — is Thursday, March 5.
If you’ve misplaced your letter or ballot, let me know and I’ll email you the materials. Use firstname.lastname@example.org to request the material or use to email your vote.
