• 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; others seek to become more involved, or engaged with fellow colleagues, current customers, and future clients. 

    We hope whatever your desire is that you reap benefit from our organization whether it’s through marketing support, attending a business workshop, garnering a new relationship through networking at a weekly Chamber Coffee, utilizing the Chamber for job postings, or attending a Chamber-organized event such as the Christmas parade.

    Without the support of our members the Chamber simply would not exist. Each and every membership is important to the strength of our organization. 

    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.
