Dear Members,

The Communications Authority of Kenya (CAK) has initiated a process for developing National Addressing System to provide a framework for naming and numbering of streets and properties in Kenya.

One of the objectives of having the system in place is to facilitate the identification and location of properties or dwellings on the ground and enable provision of services such as modern ICT services like e-commerce and door-to-door mail deliver by the government and private service providers.

KARA is a member of the National Addressing System (NAS) Strategy Development and Implementation Committee charged with the role of ensuring the establishment of a NAS with consistent and uniform standards throughout Kenya. The Committee has been working with a consultant to develop details of the NAS and a draft report of the standards/framework of the system is ready. Resident Associations being end users of the NAS are major stakeholders to the process of developing the system and must therefore have a say on the content of the system. It is for this reason that KARA has organized a forum for its members to engage the Committee on the draft progress report on NAS and provide input that will ensure that the final report reflects the views and expectations of Resident Associations.

We hereby invite you and members of your Association to the forum to be held on Saturday, 10th June 2017 from 9am to 12noon at KARA Secretariat Offices located on Jamhuri Crescent off Kabarnet Road off Ngong Road. Please find attached an abridged version of the draft report for your reference in preparation for the meeting. For your Perusal : the complete report and draft NAS Policy. We request that you confirm your attendance as soon as possible (and preferably not later than Wednesday 7th June 2017) via return mail or phone call using the contacts below. We will be pleased to make any clarifications that you may require and look forward to hosting you.
