Volunteers David King and Laura King celebrate bringing in a new Chamber member during the first day of the 2015 Membership Event. More than 100 new members joined the Chamber on the first day of the event.

They did it! Our Chamber volunteers had a record-breaking first day during our 2015 Membership Event. On Tuesday the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce became the first Chamber in the state of Kansas to bring in 101 new members on the first day of a scheduled event. And our enthusiastic volunteers did it in just six hours!

More than 250 Chamber members are devoting time this week to growing our membership and including more area businesses in the important effort to grow Wichita. A larger membership base strengthens the Chamber advocacy efforts for pro-business legislation, infrastructure improvements, and education/workforce development. Scoring a home-run in all three of these three areas makes it easier to retain our established companies and grow new businesses.

This week’s work helps ensure the Chamber’s Vision to make Wichita the premier place to grow companies, careers and communities. Thanks to our members and staff for their dedication to this important effort.

The Event concludes on Thursday, April 9. If you know of a company that wants to be part of advancing Wichita, please ask them to call Kresta Dundas at 268-1115 for membership information.
