Annual Conference

KAHO Annual Conference 2022

The Kentucky Association of Housing Officers annual conference is back in person and on-site at a campus host for 2022. October 6 and 7, KAHO will be occurring on-campus at Morehead State University. Over the last few years, housing and higher education have been forced to innovate how services are delivered, their core mission achieved, and their students and communities supported. However, despite those seismic changes, at the core remained a consistent ethic of care and community focus. These competing demands made our conference theme this year an easy one to select.
