Honors Night

Wichita has many outstanding people and organizations. The Chamber’s Honors Night recognizes some of our community’s finest, following a tradition started nearly 60 years ago.

Honors Night celebrates an outstanding individual, an exceptional young professional, exemplary corporate citizens, exceptional commitment to the community, and a striking architectural achievement. All of the honors have special meaning because each contributes to the greater well-being of our community.

On this special night, the business community gathers to say "thank you" to our honorees, who are indeed worthy. In recognition of this fact, their names will be enshrined on the "Wall of Honor" in the Chamber building, forming another stitch in the historic fabric of the Wichita area.

Due to ongoing concerns in regards to COVID-19, the Chamber will be combining two of our signature events, Honors Night and Annual Meeting, for a special evening to honor community excellence and the Chamber's annual accomplishments at the end of 2020. Visit our Level Up 2020 event page for more details.
