The Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the state’s largest business association, recently opened a satellite office in Kansas City. Blue Springs resident Brent Kahler will lead the office and has joined the chamber as the director of member relations for the Kansas City region.


Kahler is to bring new members to the Missouri chamber, help retain existing members and work to encourage members to become more involved in Missouri chamber activities. He previously served as the director of the Kansas City regional office for former Gov. Matt Blunt and as the director of the Kansas City regional office while Blunt served as Missouri secretary of state.
