Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce

YPW enjoys a close working relationship with the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber exists to drive economic growth and community advancement in the Wichita region. The Chamber accomplishes this by advancing a competitive business environment through advocacy, by offering programs and services to its members that provide a distinct advantage in achieving business objectives, and by working in conjunction with its affiliates, including YPW.

Community Advancement

Visioneering Wichita was established in 2004 to provide citizen input in developing Wichita’s future, facilitate communications so reality and perceptions are aligned, and to create a strategic plan that ensures a high quality of life. While the program has been retired, the work is still being done by a variety of organizations. Groups such as the Health Alliance, Business-Education Alliance, and the City-to-City visits have their origins in the Visioneering program. The Community Advancement department of the Chamber continues working toward accomplishing many of the goals set in the initial vision.
