At the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, we are open and clear about our organizational values. We want our current and prospective members, the communities in which we live and serve, and the governing officials with whom we interact to know of these values and to judge our merit as an organization by the strength and consistency with which our deeds match our words.
