But for the last half century Kansas has grown slowly – so slowly in fact that we are slipping behind many other states.
The mission of the Kansas Chamber is to continually strive to improve the economic climate for the benefit of every business and citizen and to safeguard our system of free, competitive enterprise. The Chamber has an urgent call to action to address the state’s sluggish growth.
We need to remove the barriers to growth and seize the enormous opportunities before us to grow our economy, strengthen economic prospects and secure the future for all Kansans.
The private sector must boldly lead this determined effort to renew our state’s vitality with crucial initiatives. We control the future.
It is very important to us, as a small business, to be allied with people of like mind. The Kansas Chamber is concerned about businesses of all sizes and is someone that can be a champion for us and our causes.
The Kansas Chamber is highly effective in developing and advocating policies that directly benefit the business community and is working hard to hold elected officials accountable for their support of the pro-business agenda.
If I could choose my legacy it would be an economic environment that would provide more jobs and a good education for our children and grandchildren. The Kansas Chamber is well positioned to create that environment.
