The 2019 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 25, during the Annual Business Meeting at the annual KLC Conference & Expo at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center in Covington, Kentucky.
