Thank you PEP Supporting Stations

Your Support of the Public Education Partnership (PEP) Program is integral to the work of the KBA and the services provided to our members. PEP provides the means by which the KBA brings trainings, workshops and the annual conference to members all FREE of charge. KBA provides monthly PEP reports to our sponsors, and those reports show which stations run PEP commercials, the number of spots played and the value of those spots. So don't forget to send monthly affidavits to the KBA--your stations deserve recognition for your support of PEP.

Send your affidavits to PEP Coordinator, Lisa Gross at pep@kba.org or to the KBA at 101 Enterprise Drive in Frankfort, KY. For more details, visit the PEP page on the KBA website. Thank you for supporting PEP.

     Harnessing the Strength of High Achievers   

One-Hour, Live MANAGEMENT Webinar

(1:00 pm Eastern/12:00 pm Central/11:00 am Mountain/10:00 am Pacific)

Guest: Darryl Sims, Former NFL Player/Coach   

High achievers have strong ego drives. They tend to run and gun, pay little attention to rules, and are very passionate about winning. A team's success is dependent on everyone working together towards a common goal. While these two concepts seem at odds, they aren't. Find the balance that turns high performance individuals into the heart of a high-performance team.
