75th Annual Convention

November 24-26, 2019
DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Wichita Airport

The Kansas Association of Conservation Districts (KACD) will celebrate its 75th anniversary at the association’s annual convention November 24-26, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Wichita Airport.  The theme for this year’s event is “Growing Roots Since 1944”.

For 75 years, KACD has helped forge key partnerships among federal, state, and local entities all committed to a common goal: wise use and protection of our state’s natural resources. These partnerships have been highly effective and mutually beneficial, allowing for shared space, equipment, and knowledge.

Each year, the KACD convention offers breakout sessions and keynote speakers aimed at providing members with timely education and information.  And as always, the annual convention provides an important opportunity for Kansas conservationists to network and share valuable stories about their own experiences.

We hope you will come and celebrate our anniversary with us!
