With Knox County adding hundreds of new cases of COVID-19 over the past few days and with no signs of slowing infection in the immediate future, for the health and safety of the KAAR employees and their families, all staff will return to working remotely beginning Tuesday morning, November 24. Although the association's physical office will be closed, staff will continue to deliver extraordinary member service from their homes. As always, staff is only a phone call or email away during regular business hours, 8:00 - 4:30 p.m. (EST), Monday - Friday. Members are encouraged to keep an eye on kaarmls.com for association updates.  

Congratulations!
