Thanks to everyone that joined us for the networking event at 3rd Turn Brewing.  It was a great success.  Special thanks to City Barbeque for a fantastic spread of delicious food.  3rd Turn Brewing is located in a repurposed historic building in Jeffersontown.  A very unique place to hold your next event.



KSAE Keeneland Event was oversold.
It was a perfect day and fun was had by all!
Thank you to everyone who attended this sellout event!

KSAE job postings have always been an important membership service. Soon we will be unveiling a new national career search site to our data center. KSAE members will still be able to post their in-state jobs for free, but now a national system will also be available.
