Kimberly Qualls Named New Education and
Communications Manager at KAC


Topeka, Kan. - The Kansas Association of Counties is pleased to announce our newest staff member, Kimberly K. Qualls, who will serve as the new Education and Communications Manager. Ms. Qualls began her new position on February 17, 2020. She is replacing Dorrie Sullivan who is retiring in March 2020.

Kimberly comes to KAC after most recently serving as the Education Coordinator at KAMMCO in Topeka. She has over 12 years of experience working in state government including her tenure from 2007-2017 as the Kansas Department of Transportation Public Affairs Manager for the northeast Kansas region.

“I look forward to providing our county members with quality educational  programming to assist them in serving their residents,” shared Kimberly. “One of my top priorities is to share the success stories of how KAC and our county members help to positively benefit the citizens of Kansas.”

In her new role, Kimberly will plan and manage the educational programming and communications efforts for KAC’s county government members. Her diverse background in event planning, education, marketing, community outreach, and public relations, both in state government and non-profit organizations, lends itself to helping KAC further its mission to provide quality education for our Kansas counties.

Kimberly is a native Topeka Kansan, who spent time in Texas and Oklahoma during her professional career. She holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Washburn University. In her spare time, Kimberly enjoys gardening, spending time with her grandson, and volunteering in the Topeka community.

The Kansas Association of Counties is a quasi-public agency, which seeks to advance the public interest by promoting effective, responsive county government in Kansas. Founded in 1975, as an instrumentality of its member counties, KAC serves county governments through: legislative representation, technical assistance, leadership and professional education.
