UPDATE ON JUNE EVENTS
While observing all safety guidelines, WIBA will return to what we are famous for: networking and fellowship in person! During our events, we will ensure social distancing protocols for seating and networking spaces. Lunches will be served individually. You'll choose your preference between ham, turkey and chicken salad sandwich box meals when you RSVP online.
 
Your safety is always our top priority. As this is an ever-changing situation, all events are subject to change.

Hear from Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple. Dr. Brandon Whipple was elected the Mayor of Wichita last November. Prior to that, he served District 96 in the Kansas House of Representatives for 7 years and was a professor at Wichita State University. Mayor Whipple moved to Wichita in 2003 at age 21 in a year-long education-service mission with AmeriCorps. In that program he worked with at-risk youth at Wichita South High School and ultimately made a decision to call Wichita home.

NEWS
ONE STOP RESOURCE CREATED FOR BUSINESSES AND NON-PROFITS TO FIND LOCAL PPE VENDORS
A group of organizations has created a resource for area businesses and organizations which want to purchase personal protective equipment related to COVID-19.

The list of local vendors making face masks, hand sanitizer, gloves, gowns, Plexiglas barriers and more can be found at wichitachamber.org/covid-19-suppliers.

While the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce volunteered to host the page on the Wichita Resource Center, the resource has been the work of multiple organizations, including the Chamber, Wichita Independent Business Association (WIBA), Visit Wichita, Non-Profit Chamber of Commerce, Wichita Community Foundation, City of Wichita, Sedgwick County and others. The Wichita Regional Chamber, WIBA, Visit Wichita and Non-Profit Chamber of Service also surveyed their members about ongoing PPE needs.
UPCOMING WEBINARS
There are many great webinars from Kansas Chamber of Commerce, ABBB, U.S. Chamber of Commerce and more. Check out our COVID-19 Resources page regularly to view links to upcoming webinars.
