Message from the President

yolanda 96962777 sAs February comes to a close and March has arrived, it’s time for our scheduled Kinship Board of Directors' meeting. All officers, directors and leadership staff come together to discuss what Kinship has been doing since the last board meeting, make plans for future events and programs, discuss ways to keep our members more engaged and connected, and find ways to meet the needs of our members. We also discuss the finances of the organization and ways to fund the programs and events we have planned for 2020. 

It can be a daunting task as we come together and go through the prepared agenda. Historically, we’ve traveled to meet face to face. That, in itself, is a costly endeavor. And although it is by far the most effective way to go through our agenda and for various committees to meet together, it’s not always possible for many of our board members to do. If most of our board are unable to travel since everyone’s schedules need to align, we move to have a virtual board meeting. And that is how this upcoming board meeting will happen. 

When we meet face to face, we hold board meeting over a weekend. When it is held virtually, we usually complete our agenda in one day. But either way, your board spends a large part of a weekend 3 times per year. I think I can safely say that we do this because we care about our members, our programs and events, our families and allies, and even for some, our church. 

I will plan to give you an update in our next eNews after our board meeting so you know what we are doing and planning for 2020. Please feel free to contact me, Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt! Zur Anzeige muss JavaScript eingeschaltet sein.  or Floyd Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist vor Spambots geschützt!

Kinship is your organization. Come join the board or help with a program or event Kinship is sponsoring. Kinship needs all of us to thrive!
