KAPIO membership is open to any communication professional working for a government agency in Kansas, quasi-government agency, community college or university student interested in government communication as a profession, and persons formerly employed in these organizations, including retirees.

Members receive access to a statewide network of government communication professionals, professional development opportunities and more. If you are interested in becoming a member, contact KAPIO Treasurer Cassie Edson at
pio@twinmounds.com or (620) 378-4455.

Our overarching goal is to connect anyone in Kansas with a PIO function in their job description with others in their field to network, share information and be a resource. All members are offered the opportunity to attend quarterly meetings outside of our conference in the months of May, August and November. As a benefit of membership, KAPIO will provide FREE trainings in the 4th quarter to every KAPIO member in good standing at the close of the KAPIO Conference in May (May 6, 2017). To receive the benefit of the FREE 4th quarter training provided by KAPIO, you need to be a KAPIO Member by the conference. Thank you!


General Member ($40): Any communications professional working for a government agency in the State of Kansas can be a General Member. General members may hold office and vote in elections. KAPIO membership entitles you to quarterly meetings and the 4th Quarter special training.

Combo Membership & 2017 Conference: ($160): Receive a discount on your 2017 conference registration with our combo option. The conference for 2017 will be May 4 and 5 in Wichita, KS at Hotel Old Town. You’ll need to handle your room reservations on your own.

2017 Conference Fee Only ($140): If you’d like to attend the conference but don’t want to be a member, use this option. If you only attend the conference and do not do the combo membership, you won't be eligible to attend the 4th quarter KAPIO trainings like we offered in 2016. (Reservation link.)
