Executive Director Update (3/26/2015):
KAIA continues to gain positive attention across the Commonwealth and around the world. During the recent session of the Kentucky General Assembly, we had the chance to review our organization’s mission and objectives before the state legislature. We followed those presentations with a legislative reception in Frankfort.
As I mentioned in our previous newsletter, we have engaged the Urban Studies Institute at the University of Louisville to conduct an economic impact study of the Kentucky automotive industry. We expect that study to be completed in April.
We want to share the results of this study with you firsthand. Our team will host a series of regional workshops across the state this summer. The study’s authors will present their findings, answer questions and discuss the industry’s future.
We’re also excited to announce our first-annual Kentucky Automotive Summit in September 14-15. We expect a large turnout of interested participants, and several high-profile, national speakers have already expressed interest in presenting to the group. More information will be coming soon.
Although our organization is only a few months old, KAIA is already making an impact on Kentucky’s automotive industry. Please continue to encourage your automotive colleagues from other organizations to consider joining us for the cause.
All the best,
