The NKBA has announced its twelve NKBA U Professional of the Year Semifinalists! Each Semifinalist has been enrolled in an NKBA U Curriculum and will be creating a video about how their coursework will benefit their career. Get ready to vote for your favorite — videos will be posted at  and on Facebook in the beginning of November. Four finalists — selected both by popular vote and a panel of NKBA judges — will compete in the Finals in Las Vegas at KBIS 2016 where the winner will be crowned.
