Welcome Toni Porter!

Toni Porter is already well-known to many of our Chamber members who will be pleased to learn that she has joined our organization as a part-time Project Manager on the Government Relations staff. Toni recently left her full-time position as District Director forKansas Congressman Mike Pompeo’s organization to explore new career opportunities. She is temporarily filling a Chamber vacancy left on the team with Jaime Dupy’s promotion earlier this month to Manager of Investor Relations. Toni has enjoyed the smooth transition to her new position. She said, “I couldn’t have felt more welcomed on my first day at the Chamber. Since the Chamber works so closely with elected officials, I was already familiar with many of the staff and had visited the offices on many occasions. It’s a great opportunity to utilize my business background and my government experience.” Earlier in her career Toni worked in corporate communications and in the real estate market. Barby Jobe, Vice President of Government Relations for the Chamber, is pleased to be working with someone who has so much expertise to share with Chamber members and staff. “Because of her extensive network, Toni was able to begin contributing to our advocacy work on her first day at the Chamber. I’ve always been impressed with her professionalism and we are thrilled to have an opportunity to work with her.”
