Regional Directors Assigned & Ready

posted Dec 30, 2016, 6:11 PM by Jason Rector   [ updated Dec 30, 2016, 6:11 PM ]

The Kentucky Constable Association, Inc. is proud to announce the return of the Regional Director positions which will be charged with attending State Association meetings and collecting and disseminating information among Constables, Deputy Constables and our State Association from within their respective regions.  The Regional Directors may also host a regional meeting for the Constables and Deputy Constables within their respective region to accomplish the outlined responsibilities set forth by the State Association.  Additional duties and assignments may be given to the Regional Directors by the Executive Director which they will serve under within the Association.

Four Regional Director positions was established which shall break down the Commonwealth into a Northern, Southern, Western and Eastern Regions.  Each Regional Meeting shall be advisory and shall not bind the Board or the Association and shall be subject to Board approval at a State Association Meeting if such action on something is necessary.

President Rector stated "bringing the Regional Directors back at least dividing the Commonwealth into four Regions should hopefully get more Constables & Deputy Constables involved in the Association activities by being able to attend a Regional meeting if they can't always attend the State meetings and having their voice heard".

The Regional Directors include Darrell Florence serving as the Northern Regional Director, Darvin Stom serving as the Western Regional Director, Jim McKenzie serving as the Eastern Regional Director and as of the time of this news release the Southern Regional position is vacant and Executive Director Jonathan Shuler and President Rector is hopeful to have someone in that capacity first of the year.

The Regional Directors have already got off and started by having their first meeting to determine the break down of the Counties per Region and their first assignments helping the Association with projects across the Commonwealth.  The Western Regional Director already has outlined his first Regional Meeting in January.  They're eager and ready to get going!
