FORT SCOTT AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
 

The Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce is a team of spirited and influential members, volunteers and staff involved in every aspect of the community. It is an effective, volunteer non-profit organization committed to helping solve today’s complex business and community problems and providing valuable service to our members. Over 400 members from across Bourbon County provide the structure, volunteer leadership, professional staff and full-time office operation to implement an effective program to meet the needs of our community.

Striving to increase prosperity and economic stability within the area, the Chamber works with the Bourbon County Economic Development Council, the City of Fort Scott, the Bourbon County Commission and other regional development agencies to facilitate growth to existing businesses and the recruitment of new business and industry. More than fifteen volunteer committees serve to enhance community growth.
