We encourage all attendees to get vaccinated if you have not already done so. Those who are immunocompromised or are concerned about the spread of COVID are also welcome to wear a mask if they choose. We also ask that if you have a fever, cough, body-aches, or other flu-like symptoms or if you have been in contact with someone who has symptoms of a positive diagnosis that you please stay home to prevent unnecessary spread. We will not be offering this conference virtually.

We are excited to offer sponsor and vendor opportunities this year, and we invite you to come and be a part of the conference. Attached are the sponsor and vendor forms to complete. You have the option of paying the sponsor or vendor fees on Eventbrite, however, they charge a fee so it is easier to send money directly to the KYACHW at the address below. Please submit your payment by August 30th at the latest.
