WaterStep Partnership

In an act of service, we are partnering with WaterStep for our annual conference this year. WaterStep is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing safe and clean drinking water to those in need. We ask that you consider bringing 1-3 pairs of shoes that you (or your family members) no longer wear to donate to WaterStep. Any style of shoes accepted but sneakers are preferred. Our goal is to collect at least 100 pairs of shoes to help provide safe water for over 30 individuals! Learn more about WaterStep at 

Complimentary Headshots

As an added benefit, KAND is providing headshot photos for all conference attendees this spring. The photographer will be available starting at 7:00 AM (ET) and throughout the full conference. We encourage all attendees to take advantage of this opportunity to have a professional headshot photo taken during the event!
