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.
