Stay Connected to Kiawah with KICA Livestream With over 80% of association members being part-time residents, Kiawah Island is somewhat unique. Many property owners want to stay informed, attend meetings and participate in discussions that may shape the future of our island, but simply aren't here when those meetings are taking place. Now, a new KICA service can help members stay connected from anywhere in the world! KICA is now offering live video streaming for certain meetings, such as KICA board meetings and Java With Jimmy. With the touch of a button, members can attend meetings and other events from the comfort of their own home. Livestreaming is simple. Simply visit the kica.us/livestream at the start of a meeting to view the stream (if available). That's it! Have any questions or comments on the livestreaming process? Send them to justask@kica.us.

New Kiawah-Seabrook Directory in Development The 2018-19 Kiawah-Seabrook Exchange Club Handbook (and directory) will go to print in a few short months. The club would like to be sure your printed information is accurate. Please review your personal listing and send corrections to ks-exchangeclub@ outlook.com. For more information visit ks-exchangeclub.com. If you are aware of owners who have left the area, or are a new property owner whose information is not yet included, you may notify the club via email as well. This information will help keep the handbook current. You do not need to be a member of the club to be included in the directory. The handbook is also popular for commercial use. If there is a business you’d like to see included, you may send the contact information by email. And, if you’re a business owner, contact the club for advertising information. The handbook isn’t only convenient for contacting neighbors. Advertising proceeds provide funds for grants to a range of local charities. Total annual grants have been in excess of $100,000.
