Congressional Forum featuring Executive Director of Visit Kansas City, Kansas Alan Carr
The Congressional Forum is a 53 year institution, and the Chamber's public policy series, which features local, state, and federal representatives to speak about issues relevant to the area's business community.
Representative Sharice Davids speaks to the group as often as she can, but other guest speakers are often featured at the monthly forums.
This month's featured speaker is Alan Carr, Executive Director of Visit Kansas City, Kansas. On the heels of national media coverage, with Kansas City, Kansas being touted as the Taco Capital of the United States by Forbes Magazine, the KCK Chamber is excited to hear an update on all things "Visit KCK." From the Taco Trail to the KC Monarchs and everything in between, we hope to see you this month for an update on tourism in our city!
