KCK Chamber of Commerce


Did you know KCSourceLink has more than 240 Resource Partners? Each one of our partners serves the entrepreneurial community of the Kansas City metro, helping entrepreneurs across the KC metro start and grow businesses.

Take, for example, the Kansas City, Kansas Chamber of Commerce. The KCK Chamber of Commerce provides networking and other opportunities to businesses located in or wishing to relocate to Kansas City, Kansas, and Wyandotte County.

Currently, the chamber works in four basic areas – legislative, information, networking and community development. The chamber is a membership-based organization led by a volunteer board with day-to-day work performed from a paid staff of full-time employees.

The KCK Chamber’s mission statement is “As a member of the business community in the metropolitan area, the mission of the Kansas City Kansas Area Chamber of Commerce is to enhance and create opportunities in Wyandotte County which build a quality community to live, work and conduct business.”
