KCIC’s committees are a vital part of the organization that work to support, celebrate and engage with our members. If you’re interested in learning more or joining, please reach out to the committee chair.
Each year, KCIC recognizes individuals and companies that have made outstanding contributions to the economic strength of Kansas City’s industrial areas through the Brick-by-Brick Awards. This committee gathers nominations, selects winners and plans the annual event.
Blight & Security
The blight and security committee is tasked with working across all member districts to address issues such as illegal dumping and deterrence of crime. Working with the City, businesses and stakeholder organizations like MoDOT, the committee recommends strategies to the KCIC Board of Directors for implementation.
The economic development committee compiles updates on economic growth and trends in Kansas City and presents monthly at the KCIC board meetings.
The infrastructure committee outlines and maintains infrastructure needs of the industrial districts through the “Green Sheet”, which is used to advocate to local, state, and federal authorities for funding and implementation.
The Sustainability Committee creates programs and opportunities for KCIC members to engage in learning about and incorporating sustainability best practices within their companies. Each fall, this committee hosts the KCIC Sustainability Awards Breakfast, which recognizes businesses that have made a significant investment in helping the environment.
The social committee plans events and opportunities for KCIC members to engage in social settings to network and experience different venues throughout our six industrial districts.
