Starting last year, the Ethics and By-Laws Committee met multiple times to discuss streamlining our By-Laws and to bring them up-to-date with current practices of the organization.  At a March meeting of the Board of Directors, the Board decided to recommend to the full membership the changes suggested by the By-Laws Committee.  Below are the approved final changes.  The By-Laws Committee provided a thorough explanation of the changes at the Spring Conference prior to the vote.  If you have questions, please let us know by sending an email to  Thank you so much for your membership and commitment to KAED and economic development in Kentucky.  We value you!
