September 26-28, 2017
Hyatt Regency Wichita

It’s that time again, the Kansas Motors Carriers Association Annual Convention is being held in Wichita, Kansas Tuesday, September 26 through Thursday, September 28, 2017. The convention offers an opportunity for those in the trucking industry to network with their peers as well as law enforcement and vendors.

As always, education is an important component to the convention. This September, KMCA is offering a special ELD session on Thursday morning. The ELD mandate begins December 18, 2017 and we’ve fielded several questions about it. This session will address the logistics of ELD usage and how you can become compliant. For those companies wanting education on ELD usage, but do not plan to attend the convention, there is a separate registration for the ELD session only.

As in previous years, the convention includes a golf tournament and a clay shoot followed by the board meeting. Running concurrently with the tournament and shoot is a welcome event that will feature two popular restaurants in the Old Town section of Wichita - River City Brewery and Public at the Brickyard. There is a a separate fee for the welcome event.

Other events of note include the annual state of the industry talk at the Wednesday lunch, educational sessions, the regulatory speaker panel and exhibition and trade show. Early registration fees are due by Friday, September 8, 2017. Any registrations received after that date include an extra fee.

You can book your hotel room at the Hyatt Regency Wichita by contacting (402) 592-6464 or (888) 421-1442.
