DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Wichita Airport
For seven decades, KACD has helped forge key partnerships among federal, state, and local
entities all committed to a common goal: wise and efficient conservation practices to protect the
stateís 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.
Hotel Accommodations: A block of rooms at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Wichita Airport was made available to
districts on March 1, 2016. If the block sells out, you may place your name on the hotelís waiting list (indicate that you are
attending the KACD convention) because rooms typically become available at the start of the convention due to last-
minute cancellations. You may also book at one of the overflow hotels:
at 1008 2500 Avenue, Abilene, KS 67410. Individual checks (or money orders) or a single
check for multiple registrations should be made payable to KACD.
Credit or debit card payment is now available for both online registrations and those that are mailed.
To pay by credit or debit card, check the box on the saved form and submit form by pressing the
Submit button after saving the form to your computer. This will send the form from your email
account. You will receive an invoice from KACD's PayPal account. Please note that you do NOT need
your own PayPal account to pay this invoice. A 3.5% fee will be added for credit/debit card payments.
Convention Program: The Preliminary Convention Program, available HERE gives an
overview of planned breakout sessions, keynote speakers, meeting times, and other details.
Please note that in order to be eligible for the bundle price of $210, which includes registration, Monday
lunch, Monday evening banquet, and Tuesday morning breakfast, registrations must be postmarked by
November 14, 2015. After that date, registration and meal tickets will be charged individually at a slightly higher rate.
