NEW THIS YEAR! 
Our annual conference will be a hybrid event! You can choose to attend in-person at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Wichita or virtually from your home or office. Virtual attendees will view the sessions live. Please note–due to the cost and logistics of streaming services, only SOME of the sessions are available to virtual attendees. At each time slot, virtual attendees have four sessions from which to choose (2 AUD sessions and 2 SLP sessions). ALL sessions will be available to in-person attendees.

ALSO NEW THIS YEAR!

We are using Whova, an online app and web platform for our conference. The web link for our conference is HERE. Here, you will find the conference program, rooms for each session, announcements about the conference, exhibitor info, hotel maps, and more. Whether you are attending live in-person or virtually from home, Whova will be a great tool for you! Virtual attendees will access conference sessions from Whova. Details will be emailed to you as the conference approaches. You can access Whova from your computer, or download the free app from the Apple Store or Google Play store for Android users.

Program

To save money (and trees), KSHA is not printing and mailing conference programs this year. You may view, download, and print (if you must) the conference program HERE. You can filter by day and by track (i.e. School/Pediatric SLP, Adult/Medical SLP, Pediatric AUD, or Adult AUD).

Exhibits & Sponsors
Exhibits will be open Thursday and Friday until 1:30. Please take time to visit the booths. Virtual attendees will have an opportunity to interact with exhibitors through the Whova app.
