KAEA is growing and now has members across the state representing adult education programs in community colleges, school districts, and non-profit organizations.
Because Kansas adult educators believe that professional development enhances the success of instructional and administrative staff and advances the professionalism of adult education, KAEA sponsors the statewide credentialing awards for Kansas adult education.
All Kansas adult education programs funded through AEFLA have staff that is credentialed.
KAEA hosts an annual conference each Spring.
The Kansas Adult Education Association has been in existence since the mid-1940s. It is recorded in the history of the Missouri Valley Adult Education Association (MVAEA) that Kansas sent representatives to the MVAEA Conference in the spring of 1947.
The KAEA is governed by a constitution and by-laws, most recently revised in 2001. If you would like to read the full text of this document, please click here.
