KASCOE Directors met on Tuesday, June 16, 2015, in Elizabethtown. Here are some highlights from the meeting:
2015 KASCOE/FanKASCOE Convention – FREE Registration!
Much of the meeting consisted of planning the upcoming Convention set for September 24 & 25 at Holiday Inn University Plaza in Bowling Green, KY. The Directors recognized this year as an opportunity to celebrate our growing membership and encourage members to attend by making Convention registration FREE! Also, a great room rate of $83/night was negotiated.
The first day of the convention includes a tour of Jackson’s Orchard, Opening Session with remarks from our SED, NASCOE representative(s), a National Speaker, and a Benefits/Retirement presentation. In the evening, there will be a Dance, Live Auction for Scholarship, and Hospitality Room.
Friday will begin with a complimentary Rise-and-Shine Networking Breakfast, followed by a Q&A Panel with STO personnel, and then KASCOE’s Business session to wrap up the Convention.
To ensure you are able to get the group room rate, book your room by August 1. Hotel Info is on the CONVENTION page. Please submit the Registration Form by September 18, 2015.
Our current membership level is over 81%. Help keep this number climbing by sharing information about KASCOE with new employees!
Dues Withholding Corrections
It was recently identified in a reconciliation of KASCOE dues that some members had incorrect payroll withholdings. If this pertains to you, please take action to file an updated FSA-444 with HR. Contact Dana McKinney if you have any questions.
The Directors extend our sincerest appreciation to all employees who have generously supported the Scholarship Program. As a result of recent successful fundraisers, we were able to approve scholarships for ALL 7 applicants this year. Stay tuned to KASCOE’s Scholarship page in the near future for details, including photos and bios of the winners.
Our MEMBER SURVEY is ongoing through June 30. If you have not taken the survey, please do so now! Prize drawing on July 1.
The SUMMER SCAVENGER HUNT prize packages are growing by the day! The Kentucky Tourism Grand Prize Package is currently valued at over $500, and the runner-up Kentucky Proud Package has a value of $300 and climbing, as donations continue to come in. Check out the specifics on the scavenger hunt page. Several photos have already been submitted. Why don’t you snap some along your travels this summer, and join in the fun?!
A selection of photos from the event will be incorporated into a KASCOE 2016 Calendar, which will be available for sale at the Convention, with proceeds to benefit the Scholarship Program.
Dues Year begins July 1
If you pay your dues annually, be reminded that the dues year begins July 1. Forms are available HERE.
Did you know that NASCOE recognizes employees with Awards for Distinguished Service, Professional Improvement, and Sick Leave hours accumulated? Also, members and their children who go the Extra Mile in their community, church, jobs, and schools.
Information about NASCOE Awards is currently on the NASCOE website, and an Awards page is coming soon to KASCOE.com so you can easily nominate those deserving recognition.
KASCOE is resuming the Spirit of KASCOE Award, and we encourage nominations be made through the KASCOE website ahead of the upcoming convention.
By-laws revision concerning Associate Directors
The Directors adopted a by-laws revision to ensure representation of retirees and current employees who are Associate Members by implementing two Associate Director ex-officio positions on the Board of Directors. This will begin with the next election cycle.
The FanKASCOE President will serve as the Retiree-Associate Director. A process was established for current employees who are Associate Members to nominate and elect a Current Employee–Associate Director.
The full text will be posted to the Documents page upon approval of the minutes of the meeting.

On December 9, 2014, KASCOE Directors met in Lexington to conduct association business. Here are some highlights from the meeting.
KASCOE Directors had the privilege to meet with the STC, SED, and Chiefs on Wednesday, December 10, 2014. Our comments and discussion included many of the same things we had discussed the previous evening, and fortunately, the STC reported that many of these issues had been topics in their discussions the previous day, as well. This shows we have great opportunities right now to partner for the benefit of our employees!
KASCOE is committed to serving our members. Please communicate with your Directors or the Officers if you are interested in working on any of these projects or serving on a committee.

Upcoming Meeting: KASCOE Officers and Directors will meet with the SED and STC at 9 AM for an hour on Wednesday, December 10. If you have issues or concerns that can be considered and discussed with management, now is the time to communicate those to your KASCOE Directors.
Success Story: KASCOE President, Dana McKinney, recently shared this message with Directors, "FSA Feud! I think everyone had a big time with this, and it allowed KASCOE to shine bright. It also provided a great partnership opportunity for our association and the STO, and hopefully this will be the first of many. Silent auction at the NAP training made $508.50, plus $63 or more in donations to scholarship. Hospitality Room had a good turnout both nights."
Save the Date: KASCOE is coordinating retirement sessions with NASCOE benefits provider Dillard Financial. Soon, flyers will be posted with all the information. WEST meeting is FEB 7 in Hopkinsville. EAST meeting is FEB 21 in Versailles. Stay tuned for more information.
