The Kaw Valley Heritage Alliance recently incorporated as a nonprofit organization in Kansas. It currently consists of more than 40 groups that have signed a Partnership Agreement. Representatives of these groups serve on the Steering Committee, on the Board of Directors, or on KVHAs subcommittees. Other individuals, committed to KVHAs vision but not affiliated with one of the partnering groups, are eligible to serve on the Steering Committee or Board of Directors as well. Individuals can also help the Alliance implement its vision for the Kaw Valley by working on one of the subcommittees, on the newsletter, or by volunteering to help with programs, projects or events sponsored by the Alliance.
