2024 KCHA Kansas County Membership and Vendor Membership Registration Renewals NOW ONLINE!

Kansas County Membership Renewal

The KCHA Executive Board voted to create an online membership application for 2024. The online application will be housed on the same platform that KCHA used for the 2023 Spring Conference registration. The membership fee for 2024 has increased to $100 per county. KCHA is now charging a single membership fee for each county, and your county can add as many individual members as you wish. This online application also includes an optional NACE membership. KCHA will collect the NACE dues and forward the dues and county information onto NACE. You will not need to apply again on the NACE website.

To complete your Kansas County KCHA membership application, click here. You can choose to pay by credit card or by check.

Vendor Partner Membership Renewal

Before your organization decides about KCHA membership, please note the benefits and opportunities a Vendor Membership provides for your organization: 

  • Vendor Membership shows that the success of the KCHA is important to your organization.

  • Your organization name will be listed along with a hotlink to your website as a vendor member on KCHA’s website.

  • You will receive special recognition at the Spring Conference.

  • Upon request, each vendor member will receive a list of contact information for KCHA county members.

The KCHA has elected to keep Vendor Membership at $125 per vendor this year.
