President’s Message

Welcome to Asian American Chamber of Commerce

In the past two decades, the number of Asian American businesses has significantly increased in the Kansas City Metro area and made their mark as exemplary business leaders, visionaries,and innovators. Entrepreneurial spirit is vibrant and we have more than 4,100 Asian American businesses with gross annual sales of over $1.4 Billion and an annual payroll of over $220 million. This is a remarkable achievement for a community that had no critical mass couple decades ago.

Our mission is to enhance the economic opportunities for Asian American businesses through education, networking, and advocacy while promoting community engagement and visibility. Every month, we run programs that fulfill our mission. In the month of May, we celebrate the “Asian American Heritage Month” with a Gala that honors distinguished entrepreneurs, professional, and civic leaders from our community.

We seek your support, encouragement, and cooperation by being a member or sponsor of the Chamber to advance entrepreneurship among Asian Americans who are turning innovative ideas into sources of economic strength.

Sincerely,

Swati Yelmar

President – Asian American Chamber of Commerce of Kansas City
