Quarterly Meetings

What and Why

KAPIO meets on a quarterly basis at locations around the State of Kansas. The  May meeting is when we hold the annual conference.
The agenda at quarterly meetings consists of lunch, general meeting and  professional development opportunities (speaker, hands-on exercise, or  tour). Members are responsible for buying their own lunch (varies; approx. $10/person). 

If you are  interested in hosting a meeting in your city, contact President Andrew Lawson, alawson@arkansascityks.gov,  620-441-4415.
