Our mission is to “connect new energy to the Chamber and Wyandotte County as a whole, encourage holistic civic duty, and develop young professionals’ leadership roles.”
The KCK Chamber rolled out KCK Forward Young Professionals in 2017 with the goal to convene and serve area professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 (or young at heart). The initiative’s pillars include networking, professional development and community outreach.
Programming in the last year has included…
Joint networkers with young professional groups throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan.
A panel discussion at City Hall with former KCK Mayor Mark Holland, City Administrator Doug Bach, and Commissioner Angela Markley regarding young professionals impact on our community.
A “Connect the Dotte” culture/history crawl through downtown Kansas City, Kansas.
A “Hard Hat Holiday Happy Hour” at the new, state-of- the-art Pinnacle/Children’s Mercy Sports Medicine Center.
And, finally, a round table regarding what attracts young professionals to jobs/employers and communities.
