Open Meeting Policy - Association Board Meeting Scheduled
The Executive Committee, which is comprised of the Elected Officers, will meet the evening before the days of the regular membership meeting. The Executive Committee has jurisdiction and final vote on matters that are discussed.

If anyone has any information or suggestions they wish to bring to the attention to the Executive Committee, these concerns should be expressed to a member of the committee prior to the Board Meeting. It is the policy that meetings of the governing board of the organization, its committees, and advisory boards shall be open to the members and held in public but are not of the public. 
Occasionally, meetings or portions of meetings may be closed to the public when considering matters relating to individuals, proprietary information, or litigation. A written statement explaining the reason for the closing of the meeting will be available on the website within a reasonable period of time.

Meeting Minutes - Public Inspection
Appropriate minutes of all open meetings shall be available for inspection by the public upon request to the Secretary or the Secretary's designee. The Secretary or the Secretary's designee will make a written or audio record of the proceedings of each closed meeting. The record will be preserved for at least two years after the meeting.

At our spring meeting a committee was formed to try to do something a little different to increase attendance at the fall meeting of the Kansas Honey Producers. We came up with the idea of trying to do some “workshop” type presentations.  I think I’ve lined up a program to meet the needs of many of our members.   

We will have two meeting rooms and will have two programs going on at the same time.  I will do a separate mailing with the registration information and the program when it is complete.
