Save the date: 2017 KMS Annual Meeting
Join us September 9
Make plans to join us at the upcoming KMS Annual Meeting on Saturday, September 9, 2017 from 9am-2:30pm at the KMS/KaMMCO Building in Topeka.
We are excited about this one-day format which includes networking and time for members to share concerns & ideas directly with the KMS Board of Trustees. Our keynote speaker, Frank Sesno–Correspondent, Anchor and Washington Bureau Chief, CNN (1984-2001; 2005-2009) and Director, George Washington University's School of Media & Public Affairs–will discuss the challenging politics surrounding health care and share how asking the right questions, at the right time can spark meaningful dialogue on important topics.
Are you asking the right questions?
Well-known as anchor, White House Correspondent and talk show host with CNN, he is also a nationally-renowned moderator, who has engaged some of the world’s leading personalities. Sesno currently serves as Director of George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs, where he leads a faculty of nearly two dozen world-class faculty who research and teach journalism, political communication and the impact of digital media in international affairs.
Mr. Sesno has authored a book entitled Ask More which addresses the art of inquiry wherein inspirational people have discovered truth and success through curiosity, questions and the ability to actively listen. Sesno will discuss how people–through improved questioning–can improve their interactions. He will also provide attendees with insight into the current political dynamics surrounding the national discussion on health care.
