KIPDA was one of ten Area Agencies on Aging from across the country selected to participate in the Business Academy, which provided participants with:
- two full days of learning business and strategic planning principles
- acquiring skills for re-tooling and re-energizing their agencies for future programming and service to their communities
- strategizing to implement specific projects to facilitate meeting the needs of their communities.
