Your Opportunity to Make a Difference
We need your active involvement and support as members on KASA’s standing committees. This is your opportunity to make a difference.
Committees are a guiding force in all aspects of KASA. Volunteering to serve on a KASA committee is your opportunity to make a difference statewide.
"If you want to become a better more rounded leader - serve on a KASA committee…You will develop connections with colleagues across the commonwealth who will help you problem solve issues at school, serve as professional references, and aid in your personal growth as a leader. The experience of serving on a KASA committee should be seen as an investment in yourself. I hope you consider joining us and I look forward to working with you soon." Dr. Jason Detre, Asst. Principal, Jefferson County Schools and KASA Past President
