 Rubin was the keynote speaker at KWAA's annual meeting in July 2019. She addressed her books "The Happiness Project" and "The Four Tendencies." The lawyers and community members in attendance learned which of the "Four Tendencies" applied to them, how they could use this information to improve their work satisfaction, and how to interact with people in the other three tendencies. Each year, approximately 200 lawyers converge at Bethany College in the centrally-located Lindsborg, Kansas, for two and a half days of CLE, networking, and fun. KWAA prides itself on the nationally-recognized keynote speakers it has been able to obtain for its conference. Past speakers include:
