About the Kansas City, KS Chapter

The Kansas City chapter is growing and prospering. Our meeting attendance has grown and we have built significant friendships. The 2017 year is underway with 3 of the 5 speakers identified, if you have suggestions for speakers or improvements please let us know. Don't miss out on the friendships and thoughtful dialog available to you as a member of this great organization.

Please note that we meet the third Tuesday of each month, with no meetings scheduled for July and December. We will alternate with Networking Meetings and Business Meetings. Business meetings include a speaker and group discussions on topics of interest to the group. Networking meetings are held in a relaxed setting and allow members a chance to get to know each other. Please check your schedule and RSVP for the meetings you can attend.

Take a minute to search the FENG Membership directory for the Kansas City Chapter. You will be impressed by the quality of our members. While there you are encouraged to reach out to a member with a background similar to yours. You could even plan to attend the next Chapter meeting.
