President’s Letter

Welcome to the Kansas City Chapter of the National Investor Relations Institute (NIRI).

The NIRI Kansas City chapter was chartered in 2001, a result of the efforts of a small group of local IR professionals to formalize the network we had already developed. While many of those founding members have moved on, a few remain, and our chapter—small but mighty—continues to be a resource for education and FUN!

Kanas City is a unique city in that it covers two states, Kansas and Missouri, and is headquarters to several Fortune 500 companies and nearly 25 public companies, spanning a wide range of industries from consumer goods, financial services, healthcare, industrials, housing, retail and restaurants to transportation and utilities.

The diversity of the Kansas City public sector creates a meaningful pool of investor relations, corporate governance, and legal talent and expertise in the region. Our chapter is committed to providing professional development opportunities for current practitioners and corporate executives, as well as those who serve as general counsel or on a board of directors.

Investor relations is a strategic management responsibility that integrates finance, communication, marketing and securities law compliance to enable the most effective two-way communication between a company, the financial community, and other constituencies. We recognize the demands and challenges faced by IRO teams and NIRI Kansas City provides a unique community where IR specialists will find a shared commitment to corporate governance, ethics and best practices in the investment management industry.

If you are interested in learning more about the Kansas City Chapter, please reach out to any of the Board members for more information.

Thank you for your support and I hope to see you in the near future!

Kind Regards,


Chapter Officers
