North Kansas City Business Council

The mission of the North Kansas City Business Council is to be an advocate for business and quality of life in North Kansas City, Missouri. We provide networking, marketing and economic development support for the community. We are also active in supporting and encouraging workforce development and entrepreneurship.


The North Kansas City, Missouri Business Council was formed in 1994 to provide better communication between the hundreds of businesses in North Kansas City and the city of North Kansas City. The business council functions much like a chamber of commerce, but membership is restricted to businesses with a location in North Kansas City. 


Principal services by the business council are to communicate discussions and decisions by the city council and to be familiar with all city department heads in order to guide businesses with concerns and needs to the right decision-makers. The business council also provides networking and marketing opportunities for its members with monthly lunch programs and other events. Frequent communications are provided by email as well as a printed newsletter every two months. 


The North Kansas City Business Council is very active in promoting workforce development and economic development, particular in conjunction with the Northland CAPS program and the 1 Million Cups/Northland program.
