The Kansas Association of Counties’ 38th annual conference kicks off Tuesday in Wichita.
About 700 county leaders from across the state, including elected officials and staff members from Sedgwick County, are expected to attend the event at the Hyatt and Century II.
The conference, which continues through Thursday, also will feature about 100 exhibitors, a news release said.
The association will announce the winner of its fifth annual Kansas County Official of the Year award Wednesday.
Sedgwick County commissioners will attend the conference and will not have their regular Wednesday meeting.
