Salina Area Chamber of Commerce

The Salina Area Chamber of Commerce was established in 1911.  It is a not-for-profit state voluntary chartered organization of business, industry, professional men and women and individuals working together to build a healthy economy and improve the quality of life. More than 1,200 firms, representing about 1,450 members, make up the Chamber's membership.


We advocate and elevate our members’ economic prosperity and are the catalyst for our community’s future.  

Vision Statement

To be the most connected, visionary, and cohesive voice of business in the region.


The Chamber is run by its members. They elect a 16-member Board of Directors that develop policies and sets goals. The board employs a Chief Executive Officer, who in-turn hires a professional staff to handle the day-to-day operation.

The Chamber is organized into five divisions. Each division is comprised of several task forces, manned voluntarily by Chamber members. The divisions are: Internal Affairs, Economic Development, Agriculture, Community Development, and Visit Salina.


Some of the major activities include:
  • Attracting new investments, jobs and payrolls.
  • Expanding the primary employment base through the growth of new and existing businesses and industries.
  • Providing opportunities for labor force training and assessment.
  • Supporting efforts to enhance educational opportunities.
  • Promoting Salina as a regional center for retail trade, health care, recreation, entertainment and culture.
  • Developing Salina as a destination for conventions, sporting events and tourist.

The variety and scope of activities of the Chamber is virtually unlimited, depending on the needs of the community.

As it works to improve the community's economy and quality of life, the Chamber keeps these broad objectives in mind:
  • To help business grow and prosper.
  • To increase job opportunities.
  • To encourage an orderly expansion and development of all segments of the community.
  • To contribute to the overall economic stability of the community.
  • To encourage and promote the private enterprise system.
