In light of the ever-changing situation involving COVID-19 in our country and community, and with the health and safety of our members, guests, and staff in mind, KCMBA’s 47th Annual Bench-Bar & Boardroom Conference (BBBC), scheduled for May 13-15, 2020, has been cancelled.  We will invite you to join us to celebrate our very deserving award winners at a later date.  For those of you needing CLE, we will be rolling out our remote delivery platform shortly.  KCMBA will fully refund all registration, golf, sponsorship and exhibitor fees paid to KCMBA for BBBC. If you have not already cancelled your hotel reservation at The Chateau, please contact them directly at 1-888-333-5253.
