The Chamber


Get to KNOW the KC Chamber
  • The KC Chamber knows Kansas City business.
  • We are a membership organization that represents more than 2,250 companies and 300,000 employees across the Greater Kansas City region.
  • Our geographical representation serves 15 counties in the bi-state area: the Missouri counties of Bates, Caldwell, Cass, Clay, Jackson, Lafayette, Platte, and Ray; and the Kansas counties of Douglas, Franklin, Johnson, Leavenworth, Linn, Miami, and Wyandotte.
  • While all the area’s largest employers are members of the KC Chamber, approximately 90 percent of Chamber members are defined as small businesses.

GROW your business and your business connections
  • We exist to make the Greater Kansas City region the best place to live, work, start a business, and grow a business.
  • We focus on three key areas that benefit members: growing the region’s economy, advocating businesses’ interests in the public policy arena, and providing innovative programs and resources that help members grow their businesses.
  • The KC Chamber also helps grow businesses by expanding their connectivity and visibility in the business community.

Become a Champion:  GO Big KC!
  • The KC Chamber believes businesses should GO BIG, and that starts with us. You can get engaged and be a part of the region’s growth. Getting involved in the KC business community with KC Chamber events, programs, and leadership opportunities is the first place to start.

We are not typical of most local chambers in the sense that we are not directly involved in either the economic development or convention/visitors functions. Those efforts are handled by two separate organizations: the Kansas City Area Development Council and the Convention & Visitors Association of Greater Kansas City.

Our Mission


Provide leadership to help business grow and Kansas City prosper – making KC the best place to live, work, start a business and grow a business.
