WHY JOIN THE OLATHE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

As the largest and most active chamber in Johnson County, the benefits of membership in the Olathe Chamber of Commerce are profoundly enriching and seemingly endless.

Join the chamber to gain visibility, credibility, and exclusivity for your company. When consumers know that a small business is a member of a chamber of commerce they are 80 percent more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future.
