CALLING STRONG LEADERS. In 2017, Kentucky Association of Black in Higher Education (KABHE) will celebrate its 34th Anniversary. We have made significant progress in these years to fulfill the organization mission and goals. It is important that we have the leadership to continue these efforts.

In April 2017 we will elect KABHE officers. We invite you to take part in the governance of KABHE by nominating qualified candidates for the positions of:

  • President
  • Treasurer
  • Northeast Regional Representative
  • Historian

Any registered KABHE member is eligible to nominate KABHE members for Officer positions. If you are not yet a registered member, register on the KABHE home page www.kabhe.wildapricot.org today.

The officers shall be elected by the general membership at our Annual Meeting Conference. Newly elected officers will be sworn in and  shall take office immediately following the Conference meeting. Officers should prepare to stay for an Executive Committee meeting following the meeting and swearing ceremony to receive pertinent information. The term of office for all executives shall be two years based on a staggered system. 

In order to be printed on the election ballot, social media, KABHE website and all other printed advertisements all nominations must be received by midnight EST on March 10, 2017.
