How can I become a member?

The Agreement and Profile are then mailed to KCDA for approval by the Board of Directors and the signature of the Executive Director. Once approved, a copy will be returned to you for your records. Interim membership is available with a faxed copy, with confirmed membership beginning with the receipt of the original Agreement.
