Your Connection to the Community

Your business will only flourish and grow to the degree of success and well-being of the overall community.  Prior to 2004, Wichita – like many mid-sized communities – struggled to come together around many community activities. Leaders involved in Visioneering looked around and realized the community was in the midst of change – from jobs to income to diversity of our population to education, recreation and even the arts.

In December 2004, Visioneering finalized a plan for the future of this area -- Sedgwick, Butler, Harvey and Sumner counties. This plan reflects the common vision for the thousands who participated in the meetings, discussions and review process. It sets goals, requires measurement and most importantly provides an opportunity for everyone in this region to become involved in shaping the future of south-central Kansas in the years to come.


Some of Visioneering's Top Goals

  • Providing citizens, public and private organizations with the opportunity to adopt shared values, benchmarks, vision and strategies to use in developing our future
  • Facilitating communications within the community so that reality and perceptions are in alignment
  • Creating a strategic plan to ensure a quality of life that encourages our young people to live, learn, work and play in our regional community
Section Highlights:
  • Visit www.LaunchWichita.com to find and post internship opportunities in Wichita and the surrounding area.
  • Visioneering has 500+ vision partners dedicated to the development of a long-range strategic plan.
