KFTC's 2019 Annual Membership Meeting
Join KFTC members from across Kentucky at our annual gather on August 2-4 in Berea to learn more about how KFTC’s voter engagement strategy goes hand in hand with our other strategies like Tax Justice and Just Transition Issue Organizing and other work aimed at building power to bring about lasting change in our Commonwealth.
We’ll meet on the campus of Berea College for a weekend of great guest speakers, workshops, social activities and more. The weekend gathering is family-friendly. Childcare will be offered, and youth are encouraged to participate in all sessions.
The weekend begins Friday evening at 7 p.m. Then we begin Saturday morning with an opening session where we orient ourselves to the space and theme of the weekend and begin to dig into a great day of learning and sharing.
Participants will have the opportunity to attend two break-out sessions of their choice from a great lineup of eight different workshops. An afternoon break on Saturday will give folks a chance to stretch our legs or relax our minds. Optional recreational and educational activities will be offered during the break. Then we’ll come back together on Saturday evening for a fun awards ceremony that recognizes the hard and important work of KFTC leaders throughout the year, and also hear from a powerful, engaging keynote speaker (TBA).
Sunday morning we’ll have a closing session, which includes our democratic, grassroots business meeting. A full schedule can be found here. More details will be added as the program continues to take shape.
Lodging will be provided in the dorms. All dorms are fully air-conditioned, and accessible rooms are available. If for some reason the dorms will not work for your lodging needs, you can indicate that when you register and we will work with you to find appropriate accommodations.
