29th Annual KDOT Transportation Safety Conference

April 15-17, 2024

Hotel Topeka at City Center, 1717 SW Topeka Blvd., Topeka, KS


Who should attend?

This conference provides valuable information for law enforcement personnel, court professionals, state and local government officials, engineers, safety advocates, EMT and EMS workers, educators and counselors, special interest group representatives and more. 

What to Expect

Keynote and breakout sessions cover injury control, law enforcement, youth issues*, roadway safety, medical marijuana and public safety, older driver issues, children in vehicles, and more. Participants can receive up to 9.5 contact hours of instruction. Several networking breaks allow attendees to meet and talk with speakers, colleagues and vendors in the virtual exhibit hall each day.

We are excited to expand the continuing education units (CEU’s), or certification maintenance credits (CM's) associated with conference sessions this year. Law enforcement and all attendees may continue to receive certificates of completion which they may submit to their supervisors or HR departments. However, in 2024 professionals working in Emergency Medical Services and Transportation Planning will find several topics qualify for CEU’s or CM's unique to their profession through these organizations: Partners are Techs EMS, Program Provider #9307, as approved by the Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services and the Kansas Chapter of the American Planning Association (CM Provider for the American Institute of Certified Planners). Persons attending the entire conference could earn up to 7.75 AICP credits, and up to 7 EMS credits. During the conference, please review the hardcopy conference program guide to learn the credit assigned under general and breakout sessions. To log AICP CM Credits go to the American Planning Association to “Search by Provider” search or scroll down to “APA Kansas Chapter” to find the offering from this conference: then choose the sessions you attended, fill out the KS APA Survey (link in the session description), and log your CM credits. See the American Planning Association for general information on logging AICP CM credits.
