Presiding & Supporting Officers

KUNA Officer Overview

Each KUNA is led by a team of Presiding Officers, who are elected by the Assembly or chosen by their program area to serve for a full year leading up to their Assembly. Presiding Officers “preside” over (lead) a specific program area at KUNA.

KUNA and KYA Presiding Officers attend a Spring PO Retreat (HS PO’s Only) and Fall PO Retreat to train and plan with their Presiding Officer teams:

Spring PO Retreat (HS Only)
May 20-21, 2017
Location TBA – Louisville
Retreat Registration

Fall PO Retreat
August 26-27, 2017

Each program area also has Supporting Officers. These positions are either appointed or application-based. Supporting Officers have a specific role within their program area, with varying levels of responsibility and time commitment.

All Supporting Officers (along with the Presiding Officers who help lead the training) are required to attend one (1) of the Supporting Officer Trainings held prior to KUNA:
