Please RSVP by this Friday (9/15) at 5:00 pm…

It’s that time of year…the KCM Fall Retreat! You’re receiving this because you’re listed on the KCM website as a student publication adviser. If you’re no longer serving in that role, please let me know (and who has taken your place).


Date: Saturday, Sept. 23

Time: 9:00 a.m. for the officer’s meeting, 10:00 a.m. for the entire KCM group

Hutchinson Community College
Shears Technology Center
Justice Theatre, Room 210
1300 N. Plum
Hutchinson, KS 67501

Details: The KCM officers will meet at 9:00 a.m. in Shears Technology Center, Room 205. The KCM group will gather at 10:00 a.m. for introductions, break out into committees, and then start the business meeting. If you have agenda items, please send them to Stacy Sparks.

Hotel: I’ve reserved a block of 10 rooms at the Comfort Inn & Suites here in town for Friday, Sept. 22. They have king suites or double rooms available for the price of $110 + tax. Call them prior to Sept. 8 to make your reservation at 620-669-2500 and mention the KCM room block to get that pricing.

RSVP: Please reply to Amber Brawner only, email brawnera@hutchcc.edu, so I can get a head count for refreshments and lunch.

It’s a busy time of the year but it takes a lot of people to make this conference happen for our students. Can’t wait to see everyone here in Hutch!
