The Military Relations Council of the Topeka Chamber of Commerce mission is to raise the level of interaction, mutual awareness, support and appreciation between the military and civilian business communities in the greater Shawnee county community.

The relationship between these two vitally important sectors of the community is strengthened through quarterly luncheons, community engagement activities and a diverse advisory board incorporating business, military, civilians and other interested parties.

Quarterly luncheons:

The luncheons provide attendees the opportunity to listen to notable guest speakers from the military community, honor veterans and network with one another to grow the military and business communities understanding of one another.

Luncheon schedule for 2018:

  • March 28, Ramada Downtown Topeka
    • Keynote speaker: Our speaker is Major General Victor Braden. Major General Braden is the Commanding General, 35th Infantry Division. He will be speaking about returning stateside from his unit’s deployment.
