The 2015 KYRLCA State Convention has come to a close. It seems after being elected
KYRLCA President for 2015-16, I and the Board, have hit the ground running.
Congratulations to all who have been elected to serve as National Delegates. It will not
be long until we make the trip across country to represent you the members at Reno, NV.
If you are interested in serving next year, I hope you also submit your name to become a
delegate. You do not have to be a fulltime carrier to get involved. RCAs can be delegates,
serve on committees and hold Board and appointed positions. Ask how you can become
involved if you are interested.
The winners of the first KYRLCA Book Fund Scholarship were announced. Sara Wilson,
Amber Hannah and Rebecca Colman were the 2015 winners. A plaque and the scholarship
money has been awarded to each. We plan to select more winners next year.
After a successful state convention the work did not stop. We did our required Board training
on Monday following the close of the state meeting. I am pleased to tell you we have already
started planning our upcoming year of events. We are all open to suggestions so if you have
any, we sincerely want to hear from you. Secretary/Treasurer Donna Cissell has compiled,
and we have reviewed, the surveys that were turned in at the Bowling Green meeting and all
that were received in the mail. We will be implementing changes to improve our meetings in
I want to commend all district officers for their attendance of our two day district officer
training. It was a learning experience for all of us. Having veteran officers working one on
one with our newly elected officers helps all involved. Vice President Jane Virgin and
Secretary/Treasurer Donna Cissell were in charge of coordinating the training and did an
excellent job in keeping the meeting going and interesting. We will continue to build on the
foundation we have started to involve members at the district as well as the state level.
Continue to look for good changes in your union.
