74th 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
state’s 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 will be available for
booking on August 1, 2018. Please avoid blocking out multiple rooms if you are unsure whether you need them or not,
this has been a problem in the past where people book multiple rooms then cancel just before the event the rooms they
do not need.  This greatly affects the hotel's inventory, forecast, and adds to costs for KACD in the future. Please have
individual names on each reservation. We ask that you not book multiple rooms under one name. You may click on the
links above for quick and easy reservations or call 316.945.1960.

You may also book at one of the overflow hotels:

Hotel at Waterwalk has a block of rooms. Make reservations by calling 316-263-1061 and let them know you are with the
KACD annual convention.
