Each of KCMBA’s eight sections is represented on the Board of Directors by its president, as are various other entities associated with KCMBA, including the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Foundation, the American Bar Association, the Kansas Bar Association, the Missouri Bar Association, and the KCMBA Past Presidents’ Club, among others. The Board meets monthly to discuss and vote on the affairs of the Association. For more information on the structure and duties of the Board of Directors, please refer to the Association’s Bylaws.
