46th Annual KAEE Conference

November 29-December 1, 2022
Historic Boone Tavern and Berea College
Berea, Kentucky

Registration Re-Opens in September!

Mini Call for Proposals

We are re-opening our call for proposals to fill in gaps created by the date and venue change. Please note this is a competitive proposal process, as we have only a few gaps to fill. Not all proposals will be accepted. We are looking for interactive, engaging, and relevant sessions.

The deadline for submissions is September 2, 2022.

A note about this year's conference

Due to the devastating flooding in eastern Kentucky, Jenny Wiley State Resort Park (where we had planned to host conference this September) is now housing flood victims for the foreseeable future. We are so grateful that this option is available to house the many families who are now without homes.  


So, we are pivoting. The conference will now be held at the Historic Boone Tavern and Berea College on Wednesday, November 30, and Thursday, December 1, with pre-conference tours and workshops on Tuesday, November 29. While we realize this change in dates and location might be an inconvenience, we are thankful to have such a caring community who we know will understand this necessity.  

We are working on a few scheduling changes and updates and will reopen registration soon. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you at conference!
