Chairman's Lunch panelists announced

Posted by: Courtney Sendall on Thursday, January 22, 2015
Our 2015 Chairman’s Lunch will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 5 at INTRUST Bank Arena. A panel of community leaders and elected officials will answer questions raised during the Fuel the Fire Speaker Series and what those answers mean for Wichita. “Last fall, three national speakers spent some time in Wichita offering their ideas on national trends that are affecting Wichita – our quality of life, our workforce, and how we can retain and attract jobs,” Chamber President and CEO Gary Plummer said. “They posed some great questions for the community to consider, and we thought we would benefit from hearing what some of our local leaders have to say about these same topics.” The program will emphasize the importance of continued collaboration between our business community, governing bodies, and educational institutions in promoting Wichita's best economic development differentiators---our educated and experienced workforce. 2015 Chamber Chair Jon Rosell 2015 Chamber Chair Jon Rosell The discussion, moderated by Chamber Chair Jon Rosell, will include the following panelists:
