Council of Ambassadors

The Council of Ambassadors is an ad hoc committee to HOKC composed of eleven Colonels from four states with diverse professional backgrounds, who are between the ages of 25-45.  This council will be integral in the evolution of HOKC. Like the Honorable Order, this group will be non-political and non-partisan.

The first meeting of the Council took place in Louisville on March 2023. They determined their purpose would be to serve as ambassadors to bring advice and perspective to the board in pursuit of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels mission. The Council will have an ex-official position on the Board of Trustees.
