What is the Kinookimaw Resident's Association (KRA)
The residents of Kinookimaw required a formal means to communicate with the General Manager of the Kinookimaw Beach Association. As outlined in the KRA bylaws (revised in 1996), the purpose of the Association is to promote communication between the seven bands of the Kinookimaw Beach Association and the residents of Kinookimaw so that each may better understand the needs and aspirations of the other; to assist each other toward the achievement of their goals; and to ensure the satisfactory performance of the terms of the leases. At the Annual General Meeting in June of each year, residents are elected to fill vacant positions on the Board of Directors of the Kinookimaw Residents Association. Members are elected for a two year term and may serve up to two consecutive, two year terms.
