Annual League Conference


2018 Information

2018 Pre-Registration List


Online registration is now closed. Registration will be located in the Pioneer Room, Maner Conference Center, Saturday, October 6 beginning at 10:30 a.m.



We were notified yesterday that President Trump will be holding a campaign event in Topeka at the ExpoCentre on Saturday, October 6 at 6 p.m. This event is not related to the League Conference; if you plan on arriving in Topeka on Saturday for the Annual Conference or one of our MTI trainings, please read the following information.  This campaign event will not impact the City Attorney CLE on Friday, October 5 or the remainder of the Annual Conference on Sunday, October 7 or Monday, October 8. If you’re not arriving on Saturday, this message does not affect you.

It is our goal to provide you essential information about parking and other security measures. If you are arriving on Saturday, October 6, we recommend you arrive early. Security will be tight at the hotel and the conference center. Next week, we will send attendees an email with a special parking placard for your car which designates you as an official League of Kansas Municipality Conference attendee. You will need to place this placard in your vehicle and have it when parking. Make sure all persons arriving have a valid photo ID.  We have created a quick survey to find out when people plan on arriving in Topeka on Saturday. This helps us work with the hotel to determine parking needs.  Please fill out this survey:

The hotel has nearly 100 rooms which they will offer at a reduced rate if conference attendees wish to come in a day early. Please contact the Capitol Plaza Hotel directly, (785) 431-7200 and mention you are with the League when calling. 

As always, we appreciate your understanding in this manner. This event is beyond our control and we want to make the best of this situation and ensure that our attendees are provided the access to parking necessary for our conference events. When there is a high-security event occurring adjacent to your conference, we want to make sure you are aware of challenges that may occur, and we are committed to providing you the information you need in advance.
