Staff Involvement in our Community
Chamber staff members know that a community is often judged by the people living in the community and their community involvement. The staff of the Greater Topeka Chamber of Commerce gives back as a group and individually!
The staff adopts families during the holidays and the Chamber Ambassadors adopt a nursing home each year. Staff members are involved with their churches, community boards and organizations, and quality of life initiatives.
