Ask an Expert Session and Rapid Fire Workshops return for 2018:

Back by popular demand!

“Ask an Expert” Session: At this session Sunday morning, League staff and Municipal Business Alliance representatives will be stationed at numbered tables, with a sign noting 2-3 topics which they are considered “experts.” This is set up to be an open discussion session, and an opportunity for conference attendees to ask their burning questions.

“Rapid Fire” Workshops: This session Monday morning is a new twist on the old roundtable format, where attendees loved the ability to get a lot of information in a short period of time, but often felt noise was an issue. We’ve taken the same time/rotation concept, but rather than have the session take place in one large room, each session will be in individual breakout rooms.  

A copy of the registration brochure will be included with the July Kansas Government Journal.
