On May 4, 2018, the KRVA Board of Directors approved the new Bylaws. The revisions were posted on the website for over the required 30 days.

Download the new Bylaws here or on the Forms and Documents page.

Note I: Page 10 and 11 has a highlighted section that was an oversight on the draft previously posted. There was an approved motion at the planning meeting on August 5, 2017 to change the required meeting attendance from 50% to 75% for board members. The minutes can be found in the dropdown menu on the right of this screen. The highlighted sentence is the updated and correct version.

Note II: The references to “Section VIII. Violations of Codes/Policies and Due Process” were edited from “By-laws” to the correct reference of “KRVA General Operating Code”. The change was made to reflect the location of Section VIII. All changes to the referred section location have been updated and highlighted.



KRVA is updating the Due Process policies for the region. Below is a download of the current Due Process with mark ups showing the changes that will be made, as well as a clean copy of the New Due Process with the changes made to be voted on by the Board of Directors.
