Councils, Committees and Task Forces

Wichita Network
This unique network partners with Wichita State University to help Chamber members find qualified employees by granting them access to an online database of prospective employee resumes.

Spouse Career Network
Professionals new to the Wichita area often bring along a "trailing" spouse, a husband or wife left without a job. Spouse Career Network connects spouses' resumes with local employment opportunities and is free for both spouses and employers looking to hire.

Contacts Clubs
The purpose of the Contacts Clubs program is to offer business networking opportunities to non-competing business owners and managers representing member firms of the Chamber. These groups meet bi-weekly to exchange new business leads and to discuss growth opportunities in the Wichita metro area.

Getting involved in a Contacts Club is a great way to build relationships, understand what those businesses do & generate leads.
