2022 Membership Directory & Visitor's Guide

Once again, we have partnered up with MetroMedia to publish our 2022 Directory. If you didn't receive your copy, you can review the digital edition on our website, which was exclusively sponsored by Citizens Federal Savings Bank.

The magazine-style publication will continue to feature Platte County and surrounding areas where your customers and prospects live and shop.
Again this year, It will include gorgeous, quality photos which will tell our story. The new publication will be mailed out to all Chamber members as well as distributed to government offices, realtors, hospitals, visitor centers, major area employees, schools, and other businesses. We will reach up to 10,000 readers! We also send copies to those requesting various information.
There will be sections on tourism, commerce, education, history, recreation, demographics, transportation, and health, along with a detailed membership and business directory.
Reserve a space in your favorite section to promote your business to fellow members and consumers, as well as businesses seeking to relocate.  Contact Chamber member Tammie Easson at 417-629-7935 or to secure the best placement in our 2021 publication.
Thank you for supporting the Parkville Area Chamber of Commerce as we continue to promote our area as a great place to live, work, shop, and play.

Park University Athletics Director Claude English Announces Retirement
Longtime Park University director of athletics Claude English has announced that he will retire, effective Friday, Aug. 13.

English began his affiliation with Park in 1992, serving as the men’s basketball head coach through the end of the 2004-05 season. In January 1996, English added the title of athletics director, a role that he has held for the past 25½ years.
The University’s athletics programs have received numerous national accolades during English’s helm, including seven NAIA national volleyball championships (five men’s and two women’s), 79 conference championships between the Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference, American Midwest Conference, and Heart of America Athletic Conference, 170 NAIA All-Americans, 428 NAIA Scholar-Athletes and a 17-time NAIA Champions of Character awardee.

The University will conduct a national search to replace English. In the interim, Jayme Uden, Ed.D., associate vice president and dean of students, will serve as acting director of athletics. Jason Kline, men’s basketball head coach, and Mike Talamantes, director of volleyball, and men’s and women’s volleyball head coach, both of whom serve as an assistant athletic director, will provide support to Uden.

A ceremony to honor English is expected to be held on the University’s Parkville Campus sometime this fall.
