• Join the Chamber

  • THANK YOU in advance for your investment in the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce and in the Fort Scott/Bourbon County community!

    Some members join merely to support the work of the Chamber for the community and region, and some seek to become more involved—a common saying is ‘the more you put into it, the more you will get out of it’. 

    We hope whatever your desire is that you will reap benefit from our organization whether it’s through a local event like the Christmas parade, or whether it’s landing a new client through networking at a Coffee. 

    Without the support of members the Chamber simply would not exist.

    If at any time you have ideas, input, or want to be involved on a committee or volunteer, please do not hesitate to let us know.
