Annual Fall Workshop

The Annual KIAAA Fall Workshop will be Monday, November 7th, at the KSHSAA Office in Topeka. The tentative agenda for the workshop can be seen by clicking HERE.  Registration is now open through your FinalForms Portal.  There will be a hotel block rate for those coming up either Saturday or Sunday evening at the Endeavor Inn and Suites (formally the ClubHouse Inn) in Topeka (924 Southwest Henderson, Topeka).  The block rate is $83/night (plus room and sales tax).  Contact the hotel by calling 785-273-8888 and make sure to request the KIAAA Block Rate. There are only a limited number of rooms, so make sure to make reservations asap.  The block is only open through 10/20/22.

LTI courses are being offered on the Sunday (11/6) prior to the Workshop.  Those courses are $100 each and you can enroll for those through your FinalForms portal.  For NEW ADs, we have a special rate of $50 if you take one course, and $75 total if you take two courses.  The KIAAA feels that LTI 501/502 are the single most beneficial resource for new ADs, and this is why these courses are being provided at such a reduced cost.  Please send a note to mhaugth@kiaaa.org if you have questions. 


Membership Drive Through October 15

The 2022-2022 school year is now upon us.  This is an exciting time for the KIAAA, as our organization embarks on the implementation of a new 5-year Strategic Plan.  There are some exciting new initiatives that are part of that plan, as well framework for building on those KIAAA programs already in place.  We are anticipating record membership for the 2022-2023 school year.  If you are needing to renew your membership, or you are looking to open a new membership, please click HERE to take you to the membership site.  Once within that site, you will have the opportunity to sign up for the 2022-2023 membership, and you can also sign up for the KIAAA Annual Conference held in March.  While it is not required to sign up for the conference at this time, this option does serve as a one-stop payment process so that membership/conference can be paid all at once.  We would strongly encourage you to consider this pay-all option.  If there are questions, please contact mhaught@kiaaa.org.

The KIAAA has a variety of sponsorship opportunities for businesses and organizations.  Depending on the partnership level, sponsors have an opportunity to be recognized at specific events at the annual conference, have a high level of exposure throughout the conference through banners and printed/electronic publications, and have exposure on the KIAAA website and email communication, etc.  The KIAAA is interested in developing a partnership with the sponsor's needs in mind.  As a sponsor, WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?  Reference the sponsorship packet as a guide by clicking HERE.
