Luncheons

FIA has 9 luncheons per year. These luncheons typically fall on the second Thursday of the month except July and December where we do not have a luncheon and October where we have the Fairfax Festival instead of a luncheon.

Luncheons are usually held at a business in the Fairfax District. We have a variety of speakers and topics. In 2017, our speakers included Greg Kindle – President of Wyandotte Economic Development Council, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, KC Legend, Johnny Rowlands – Storm Chasing, Wyandotte County Appraiser Kathy Briney, Diane O’Byrne – The 4 Languages of Business, Esther George – President & CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Mike Tabman – Retired FBI Agent – Business Risk in the E-World, Joe Reardon – former Mayor and current President CEO of the Kansas City Chamber, WyCo/KCK County Administrator Doug Bach.

Attendance averages 80 at each luncheon.


If you are not a member and would like to check out the FIA, please join us! Guests are allowed to attend 3 luncheons before joining.
