How to Join a Section
Once a year, in July, the KBA sends out the annual dues statement for the July 1 - June fiscal year. All sections are listed on this notice and you can join sections on this statement as you pay your dues. You may also join at any time during the year, however dues are not pro-rated. If you join during the year without the dues notice you may make a check payable to the Kentucky Bar Association in the appropriate amount and include your name, bar identification number, mailing address, e-mail address and the section(s). Mail to:

Section & Division Officer Handbook
Each July, the KBA Section Liaison provides all incoming section officers with a copy of the Section Officer Handbook. This handbook details relevant Supreme Court Rules, KBA by-laws and policies and procedures that apply in the execution of each section officer's duties. This handbook is designed to serve as a reference guide to help answer the questions that will arise during the bar year. A copy of the 2013-2014 Section Officer Handbook is available here.
