Kansas Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom

Committees

KFAC has four active committees that assist in overseeing the organization’s activities, direction, and policy. Each committee is responsible for a different aspect of the organization and makes specialized recommendations to the board of directors to help them make more informed decisions. Every board member serves on at least one committee. The other committee members are chosen based on their expertise in the industry relating to that specific committee.
