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, all of whom are industry leaders within the greater Kansas City area, covering a broad mix of topics. Attendance averages 80 at each luncheon.

Some speaker highlights included:

  • Sly James, Mayor of KC, MO
  • David Alvey, WyCo/KCK Mayor
  • Mark Dupree, Wyandotte County District Attorney
  • Major Rance Quinn, KCKPD
  • Joe Lieberman, Speaker, Life Coach and Author
  • Danica Rome, Wyandotte Economic Development & Keely Schneider, Workforce Partnership
  • Larry Diehl, Kansas City Historian
  • Melissa Clark, Fairfax Master Plan
  • Dan Desko, B25 Bomber History Project
  • Kevin Yoder, Congressman

  • 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.
