Lt. Gov. Toland and Jobe join an already packed list of presenters including Kansas State University President Richard Linton, 1st Infantry Division Deputy Commanding General Niave F. Knell, Kansas Children’s Cabinet Director Melissa Rooker to discuss childcare, and KSU Economist Eric Higgins among other subject matter experts.
Over the past two years we have seen fewer presenters as we had a more open dialog on regional issues. Some of those issues (entrepreneurship, child care and housing) will be subjects of presentations as well. However, we thought this year was a great opportunity to bring in subject matter experts from around the region and state to discuss these topics as well as others. See the full agenda here.
Also, this is the inaugural year for the 15 Under 40 recognition reception in which we will honor those individuals under 40 that have shown great achievement in their careers and community.
There is still time to register for this informative event by going here, registration will close today at 5:00 p.m.
However, we don’t have a lot of time to rest. Next week will be our first live Good Morning Manhattan since 2020. The featured speakers for the event are Manhattan Mayor Mark Hatesohl and new Chamber Chair Mark Knackendoffel. Both will give their priorities for 2023. Good Morning Manhattan is Thursday with doors opening at 7:30 a.m. at the Four Points by Sheraton. Find more information and registration here.
Finally, just a note that the Chamber offices will be closed Jan. 16 in recognition of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing you Thursday at the Regional Leader’s Retreat.
