The Southwest Kansas Chambers of Commerce has announced the details for the 9th annual “Southwest Kansas Night Out in Topeka.” Each year, the group comprised of Chamber executives from the Garden City, Dodge City, Grant County, Hugoton, Liberal, and Scott City Area Chambers, hosts Kansas State Senators and State Representatives in the capitol city during the legislative session.
The event will be held on Monday, January 22, 2018 at The Capitol Plaza Hotel in Topeka from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The event honors state-wide legislators and introduces them to Southwest Kansas businesses and community leaders. All 40 State Senators and all 125 State Representatives are invited to the event.
“It’s exciting to host an event where a multi-faceted group of leaders are working together for the common good for Southwest Kansas,” says Lindsay Singley, Executive Director of the Scott City Area Chamber of Commerce. “The stronger and more cohesive relationship we can forge as a region, the more success our Southwest Kansas legislative delegation will be. This event is vital for the business community of Southwest Kansas. It is a unique opportunity to share their needs and ideas directly with all Kansas state legislators, many of whom are new to the political arena and may know little of what Southwest Kansas has to offer!” Singley added.
The event is open to all Southwest Kansas business entities and all community leaders are invited and encouraged to attend. No reservations are needed, but an RSVP is suggested for name tag preparation. Simply call Rozelle Webb, Liberal Chamber Director at 620-624-3855 or Alisha Owens at the Hugoton Chamber for further details (620)544-4305.
