72nd Annual Convention
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:

Best Western Airport Inn & Conference Center

La Quinta Inn & Suites Wichita Airport
