Join us for a complimentary lunch while we discuss the property tax appeals process in Kansas. 

PROGRAM: The program will address how "fair market value" is determined for Kansas property tax purposes and review the steps business owners and other property owners can take to reduce their property tax bills. Kansas property tax assessments are generally mailed out by March 1 and appeals are due 30 days from the mailing date.

PRESENTER: Jarrod Kieffer is an attorney with Stinson Leonard Street LLP and has extensive experience handling property tax appeals.  He represents businesses, commercial property owners, manufacturers, and others looking to appeal and reduce their property tax bills.

A special thank you to Stinson Leonard Street LLP for their partnership on this program - and for providing lunch for our attendees.

After completing Board Placement 101, interested members move on to the next tier of the program, Board Placement Speed Networking. This event provides members an opportunity to personally connect to representatives from local nonprofits in an environment similar to speed dating. Like speed dating, all attendees are expected to meet with all nonprofits.

  1. During the event, the nonprofits and YPs meet for a limited time to ask questions and share about themselves.
  2. At the end of the event, both the nonprofit representatives and YPW members turn in interest forms selecting their preferred candidates/nonprofits.
  3. After the event, we match those who have common interest and pass the contact information of the individuals to the nonprofits to continue the process of getting the YP involved on its board.

All attending nonprofits are listed at the bottom of this event. We strongly encourage you to review their websites to come prepared with questions for each organization. And come with an open mind, because you will be meeting with all nonprofits in attendance!

This event is limited to 15 nonprofits and 15 YPs. This is a very structured event, and it is important to the overall flow of the evening that you arrive no later than 5:30 p.m.

Registration will open at 12:00 a.m. on Wednesday, February 28.
