"It's been six years since our store opened and I still remember that a Chamber representative was one of the first people to welcome us. It was a no-brainer to join after he explained membership and benefits, networking events, seminars, the B2B event and others. Most importantly, he took a sincere interest in our business. The Chamber tries to cover all the bases when it comes to assisting businesses get a good start ... and help keep that good start going year after year." - Jeanne Mackay, The Tasteful Olive
"Our Chamber provides the structure that enables residents and businesses to maintain a public-private partnership with our local public officials. Such collaboration is essential for the continuous efforts to maintain and enhance the multiple aspects required for our overall goal of making Overland Park one of the nation’s best places to live, work and raise a family."
- Ben Craig, Central Bank of the Midwest
"I have been an Overland Park Chamber member for over 30 years. It was the organization I joined first when I started my insurance business. Over the years, I have networked, learned, shared ideas and met great people. I’ve also written new business as a result of my membership."
- Penny Hardesty, State Farm Insurance
"The Overland Park Chamber helps me connect with other small businesses and much larger businesses. The networking events allow me to make crucial business connections each and every month."
- Justin Hoffman, Branded by Promotion
"The Overland Park Chamber has been instrumental in the growth of my company. We joined 19 years ago when we formed the company and, because we have taken advantage of the opportunities the Chamber has to offer, we have seen steady and consistent growth."
- Ed O’Connor, PC Partners
"When I relaunched my photography business in 2008, I knew the importance of personal relationships in business and I knew attending as many chamber events as possible was the best way to build those relationships. I cannot imagine operating a successful business without the contacts and relationships I have developed through my many friends at the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce.
- Jim Mathis, Mathis Photography
I have been actively involved with the Chamber for more than 25 years and have found my membership valuable to both me and my firm. More than anything, it has allowed us to build strong and diverse relationships with many great people throughout the local business community. The Chamber has been a great resource when we’ve needed to develop reliable information about various issues related to business and governmental policy. Our Chamber investment has been time and money well spent.
