FROM THE CHAIRMAN
In this bright future, you can’t forget your past. – Bob Marley
I would wager that Apple has done more for the camera than the phone. While it enables you to communicate with anyone-anywhere-anytime, arguably its greatest benefit is its ability to capture life “on film.” Looking at this 2017 Annual Report, an album of amazing photos, I see our state’s top legislators listening intently as YOU personalize our positions. I scroll and find regulators standing beside YOU, mutually recognizing the change in the air. YOU are there in the committee pictures, too. Lawyers, excavators, welders and entrepreneurs lending your individual expertise for the advancement of the whole. Behind the scenes, I see our team that works so diligently, not for their own interests, but for the progression of ours. Indeed, what an achievement 2017 represents – one I won’t soon forget. And while we now create a new album that is 2018, we want even more pictures of YOU. For like the reggae icon once wrote, “here and now…this, this is the bright future.”

Marshall McLuhan said it best – the medium is the message. In that vein, welcome to the KPMA’s interactive 2017 Annual Report, celebrating the key accomplishments and significant interactions of the year. We created a digital annual report because interaction was really the theme of 2017: KPMA members connecting at our many events and conferences, highly engaging with legislators and regulators
on critical issues, and leading the growth of our association through key decision making and thoughtful interaction. We also had some fun along the way and, most importantly, advanced the mission of our association in Kentucky. Click through and enjoy this interactive review of 2017. We think you will see why KPMA is a vibrant organization on the move.
