The Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce and its economic-development partner are embarking on a new fundraising campaign and leadership development effort, both with the long-term goal of ensuring that Wichita is among the top 25 percent of metropolitan areas nationwide for economic performance.

The Chamber and the Greater Wichita Economic Development Coalition announced the Business at Full Throttle leadership campaign for economic development on Thursday.

The campaign aims to raise $9 million to sustain GWEDC for the next five years and to fund a new Chamber leadership council. The council, made up of CEOs from the private and public sectors, will work to eliminate barriers to economic development and capitalize on opportunities. More here.
