State Association

The next Kansas Oxford House State Association meeting will be held Saturday, May 13, 2023 at 1:00 PM at the First United Methodist Church, 2123 Forest Avenue Great Bend, KS 67530.

State Dues & State Revolving Loan Checks will need to be written separately but both pay to the order of “KOHSA”. Remember to write the total number of beds you are paying on in the memo line of your dues check, as this will help the treasure with accurate reporting. And if you’re paying a loan back do not combine it with your dues. You need a completely separate check. And please put “Loan Payment” & the house name in memo line of the check. If your chapter is donating to the revolving loan fund, please write “Donation” in the memo line, also a separate check from dues or a loan payments.

State dues and audits will be turned into the treasurer in person before the meeting. Your completed summary report should be emailed to the secretary prior to the meeting and preferably typed for legibility. If you have anything to add to the agenda, please reach out to the State Chair prior to the meeting to get it added.
