KLC Committee Seeks Board Nominations

The 2021 Kentucky League of Cities, Inc., (KLC) Nominating Committee will soon begin work developing a slate of nominees for KLC officers (president, first vice president, and second vice president), Executive Board, and Board of Directors positions. The Committee welcomes nominations from current officers, board members, and the general KLC membership. 

If you are interested in nominating yourself or another person for a KLC officer, Executive Board, or Board of Directors position, the Nominating Committee would like to hear from you. The slate of nominees will be submitted for a vote on Wednesday, September 22, during the Annual Business Meeting at the annual KLC Conference & Expo at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, Kentucky.

To be eligible, candidates must meet the following qualifications:

KLC Officers

Each officer nominee must be an elected official from a city government that is a member in good standing of KLC and must be serving on the Executive Board at the time of his or her nomination and election. No two officers can be from the same city, and no officer can be elected to a consecutive term after having served a full term in the same office. However, any officer may be elected to serve a full term after being appointed to fill a vacant term.

KLC Executive Board

The KLC Executive Board serves as the governing body of the organization. Nominees must be elected or appointed officials from city governments that are members in good standing of KLC. For an individual to be eligible for nomination and service on the Executive Board, he or she shall be serving on the KLC Board of Directors unless the position is one of the two appointed official positions or is for a regional director position and there are no Board of Directors members that are qualified or willing to serve. No two members of the Executive Board shall be elected or appointed officials of the same city, and no member can be elected to serve more than two consecutive terms.

KLC Board of Directors

The KLC Board of Directors serves as the legislative policy-making arm of the organization. Nominees must be elected or appointed officials from city governments that are members in good standing of KLC. All regional and at-large positions not occupied by past presidents or executive board members expire at the 2021 KLC Conference & Expo.
