The Kansas Association of Code Enforcement, known as KACE, was established by code enforcement officers of the State of Kansas in 1992. Officers from Wichita, Overland Park, Olathe and several other cities came together to form what is now the primary organization for code enforcement personnel throughout the state. A voluntary certification program was initiated by KACE as a means to encourage professionalism among all code enforcement personnel within the State of Kansas. KACE is a non-profit organization. There are approximately 90 active KACE members representing various jurisdictions from every corner of Kansas.

For over a decade KACE has provided bi-annual training conferences for its members. Through these training opportunities and certification KACE continues to fulfill its mission to train code officials, supply continuing education, and promote the advancement of code compliance profession in the State of Kansas.
