The Association created just for YOU! 

We're Back!

Just as most of you have, KANS has struggled during the pandemic.  The annual conference wasn't held last year so this is a time of rebuilding for the organization. Officers positions are available (applications are available in this website).  Elections will be held during the upcoming conference.

KANS will be holding its annual conference during the annual mid-year NSNA conference.  This was supposed to be held in Louisville but has been changed to virtual due to the COVID pandemic.  We are really excited about our guest speaker and think that you guys will be excited, too!

Be sure to check out the schedule for the KANS conference, which will be held on Saturday, 11/13.  Registration for the NSNA mid-year conference will be required but you'll be happy with the ability to attend both conferences for one price, and the price is a great deal (do NOT register online for the conference - registration form on conference page).  EARLY REGISTRATION HAS BEEN EXTENDED BY NSNA UNTIL 11/7/2021 -- HURRY & SAVE $$!
