Centennial Celebration

In 2017, the Chamber celebrated 100 years of activation, incubation and acceleration of community-changing programs and initiatives. To mark the occasion, we renovated the public spaces of our home at 350 W. Douglas and initiated new programs focused on inclusion and education.

We believe education policy must be a top priority for the Chamber. Our region’s future economic growth is directly tied to a skilled and educated workforce. We’ll be amplifying our voice and working to develop solutions that address the needs of our region's K-12 students, as well as the urgent educational and workforce demands of the aerospace industry and other advanced manufacturing.

The Chamber recognizes the competitive advantage of having a diverse and inclusive business climate, and retaining talent has been a long-time focus of ours. The Chamber's diversity and inclusion initiatives provide even more tools and opportunities for businesses to leverage the unique talents and perspectives of Wichita's workforce.

Of course, all of these efforts require talent, time and funding. Thank you to the companies and individuals listed at the bottom of this page for their investment.

The Centennial Celebration is a joint effort between the Chamber and the Wichita Educational Foundation.
