Marriage Equality Kentucky is a grassroots movement that seeks legal recognition of gender-neutral marriage throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
Marriage Equality Kentucky is a proud, sponsored member of Kentucky Equality Federation. Marriage Equality Kentucky’s Board of Regents are appointed by the sitting President of Kentucky Equality Federation, on the advice of the Chair of their Board of Directors. The Managing Director of Marriage Equality Kentucky may also nominate people to serve on the Board of Regents.
Marriage Equality Kentucky’s Board of Regents acts similar to an incorporated companies Board of Directors.
Marriage Equality Kentucky also has multiple Focus Groups who give the managing director regular political advice.
Since we are an unincorporated group, Kentucky Equality Federation covers any expenses we may have, but we have our own Constitution, Managing Director and others that control day-to-day operations and decisions.
As a sponsored unincorporated group, the president, any vice presidents, the board chair and all board members of Kentucky Equality Federation hold the same ex officio position by virtue of the office and authority at Kentucky Equality Federation. In practice, Kentucky Equality Federation remains out of our day-to-day operations leaving our Board of Regents to supervise governance items.
