Chamber welcomes 226 new members during three-day membership event

We welcomed 226 new members during our membership event last week on April 7-9, during which 200 community volunteers gathered to support the Chamber’s membership campaign.

A celebration was held for volunteers at the conclusion of the membership event, where several awards were presented to the top performers. An award for recruiting at least six new memberships was presented to Michael Frimel, Consolidated Holdings, Inc.; Chad Glenn, 3ten Studio; and Kirk Howie, Cornejo & Sons Inc.

An award for displaying outstanding dedication during the event was presented to Wayne Chambers, High Touch Technologies; Brandon Converse, Keating & Associates; Marty Cornejo, Cornejo & Sons Inc.; Tom Dondlinger, Dondlinger & Sons Construction Company Inc.; Moji Fanimokun, Kansas Secured Title; Jeff Fluhr, Wichita Downtown Development Corporation; Don Harris, Spirit AeroSystems, Inc.; Michael Monteferrante, Envision, Inc.; and Sean Weaver, Allen, Gibbs & Houlik, L.C.

These 226 new members raises our membership to more than 1,900, further solidifying our role as the voice of the business community and the distinction of being the largest Chamber in Kansas.

A list of the new members will be available in the coming week. See photos from the event on our Facebook page, and read conversation surrounding the event on Twitter using #ChamberICT.
