History of the Chamber
A strong business organization since 1946
Established in 1946, the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce is a membership organization that works to preserve the best possible business climate and quality of life for Shawnee. There are 650 business members in this organization continuing to grow, thanks – in part – to a strong community commitment of making Shawnee succeed.
The Shawnee Chamber Corporation (501c6) is comprised of three divisions: the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce, Shawnee Economic Development, and Visit Shawnee. These organizations have different missions, but they are united in one overall effort: to make Shawnee a great place to do business, whether you are a visitor, a company, or a resident.
All divisions are located at the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce headquarters on the southwest corner of Shawnee Mission Parkway and Lackman Road. The Chamber offices are on the second floor of the Central Bank of the Midwest, 15100 West 67th Street, Suite 202, Shawnee, KS 66217-9344.
The Shawnee Chamber of Commerce effectively promotes the interests of Shawnee and is the leading advocate for the growth and enhancement of our community.
