The Wichita Chamber and the Wichita Educational Foundation are pleased to announced the 2017 Annual Meeting featured speakers to be:
Gregg Marshall, head coach of the Wichita State University men's basketball team and
Dick Vitale, ESPN sportscaster and college basketball ambassador
The Chamber’s Annual Meeting is an opportunity to celebrate wonderful stories about our city. We’re continuing that tradition this year by hosting a dynamic discussion about Team Wichita: the impact of sports on our region and the positive outcomes that occur when sports put Wichita on a national stage.
The Wichita region has a lot to be proud of when it comes to the athletic arena. From events like the Prairie Fire Marathon and hosting the first round of 2018 NCAA tournament, to producing Olympians and investing in new athletic infrastructure, we have earned the right to call ourselves a ‘sports town’.
Please join us on Tuesday, Nov. 7!
5 - 7 p.m. | Networking Gala (including dinner) will be held in Century II Exhibition Hall
7 - 9 p.m. | Program will take place in Century II Convention Hall immediately following dinner (doors open at 6 p.m. for program only attendees).
