Kansas City / County Management Conference

Join us as we host the 71st Kansas City/County Managers Conference: 

KCCM 2020, Vision for our Future!  

We couldn't resist, after all, it's only 2020 once, right?  So join us for a look around Kansas.  What do we see?  What have we learned?  What does the future hold?  Join us for a terrific line up of keynote speakers, breakout sessions, networking and social activities, and faculty spotlights.  Meet our first-year City Management Fellows! 

Highlights include Jim McLean, senior reporter, Kansas News Service and host of My Fellow Kansans podcast; Matt Tidwell, Professor from the KU Journalism School on crisis communications; Patty Clark, Deputy Secretary of the Kansas Department of Commerce to discuss the "Framework for Growth" study they've completed.  There is always much more, and we look forward to seeing you.  


Registration is open now!
