On November 16, 1929 the Raytown Chamber of Commerce was incorporated. Over the years the Chamber expanded its boundaries and updated its mission statements and purposes. A new building, totally funded by a capital campaign, was erected at its current site on the corner of 59th and Raytown Trafficway in 1988.
Now known as the Raytown Area Chamber of Commerce, our boundaries include the 32-square-mile area of the Raytown School District, and beyond.
