WICHITA, Kan. - The Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce and Wichita Educational Foundation announced earlier this month that Wichita native Charles Koch is the featured guest speaker at the Chamber Annual Meeting on Monday, November 2, 2015. Koch is the Chairman and CEO of Koch Industries, Inc., a position he has held since 1967.
The Chamber has also secured Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski from MSNBC’s Morning Joe program to interview Koch on stage as part of the program. An added feature of the event includes the broadcast of the Morning Joe program live from Wichita the following day.
2015 Chamber Chairman Jon Rosell said that the evening with Koch will be enhanced by two nationally known and experienced interviewers. Rosell said, “All three of the people on stage that evening are thought leaders and authors who will have a lot to share with our community.”
Gary Plummer, President and CEO of the Wichita Metro Chamber of Commerce, said he is especially pleased about the opportunity to showcase Wichita the next day and to tell Wichita’s remarkable story.
Community partners for the next day’s broadcast in Wichita are Wichita State University, Visit Wichita, and the Greater Wichita Partnership.
