2014 APWA Mid-America Conference & Exhibit Show
When: May 21 – 23, 2014
Where: Overland Park Convention Center - Overland Park, Kansas

This spring’s Mid-Am Conference is rapidly approaching, and though you would never guess from the weather, it will be here before you know it. So far, nearly 50% of our booth spaces are reserved (with prime booth locations going fast!). Online conference registration was announced the final day of January and before the end of February, over fifty persons had registered. I won’t tell you which Chapter is ahead in registrations, but I will say: WAY TO GO KANSAS CHAPTER!! for no particular reason.

You may not know this, but the Mid-Am is one of the first events to use APWA National’s new website template. This has resulted in “issues” with the online registration process. If you are one of those that has experienced frustration with the website, please accept our apologies. On the flip side of the coin, we are doing WAY better than HealthCare.gov, and we spent somewhere south of $300M to get things up and running…nevertheless, we are sorry for any inconvenience. If problems persist, contact information for persons that can assist with registration for exhibit space or the conference itself are provided on the website, or you can contact me and I’ll point you in the right direction (contact information below).
Make it a Stay in Kansas City!
The Kansas City area will have a lot going on during and after the Mid-Am Conference, including:

Royals Baseball: The Kansas City Royals will take on the Chicago White Sox at Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday, May 21st. First pitch is at 8:10 p.m.
Worlds of Fun: If you want something for the kids to do, this long-time KC attraction opens in early May. If you stay after the conference, both Oceans of Fun (Missouri-side) and Schlitterbahn (Kansas-side) waterparks open the same weekend.
