The KIA Board of Directors should be thanked for their dedication to its members through the past year, led by its president Kurt Murata. The Board meets every month, attends General Membership Meetings, Networking Events, and this year worked very hard on the KIA Invitational Golf Tournament which allowed KIA to donate $10,000 to the Children’s Discovery Center.
