Chamber 2010-02

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.

Our boundaries include the 32-square-mile area of the Raytown School District, and beyond. We sit in the heart of the Kansas City, Missouri metropolitan    area and serve as a crossroads to many   destinations. We are, and will continue to be, a community excited about living, playing or working in this great place we call home.  The Raytown Chamber is at the heart of many community activities helping to  promote the city of  Raytown.

2019 was a milestone year for the Raytown Chamber with an update to our logo and the addition of tourism to the Chamber’s name.  The Building Foundation will remodel the building with an emphasis on the outside to reflect the addition of the Rock Island Trail through the front area of the property.  A plaza area will allow for those utilizing the trail a place to rest, hydrate and get  information about Raytown.

As the Chamber looks forward to its 100th anniversary, we will continue to be an advocate for the businesses in this  community, and our focus is on a successful business future. In today’s world,  working  hard  is  not  enough.   You need to work smart, looking for the best opportunities to increase your visibility, and maximize your chances for success. That’s where the  Chamber fits into your business plan –  membership in the Chamber is one of the wisest investments you will ever make.
