COMMITTEE: Calvin Girard, Anne Hucker, Matt Staub

The communications committee creates broad awareness of the Centurions program and of contributions to the local business and civic communities. The committee also commits to developing and maintaining internal communications programs amongst active Centurions as well as alumni of the program to communicate key activities, news, and events.

  • Content for newsletters transmitted by e-mail to all active members, alumni, and Chamber staff.
  • Maintain a photo library documenting Centurions activity, projects, task forces, and other events.
  • Build, strengthen and maintain relationships with various local media to garner earned coverage of task forces, projects, events, volunteer efforts and other Centurions-focused programming and related events. The Communications Committee will pitch, at minimum, one story per month while working closely with its partners, presenters, sponsors and the KC Chamber to maximize and leverage media opportunities whenever possible.
  • Provide updates to active Centurions on business activities of fellow Centurions.

Website and newsletter content is submitted to KC Chamber staff for approval and posting. Social media content is distributed by assigned Communications Committee members. Centurions email is distributed via subgroups.


The newsletter, website, emails, and social media accounts are the main sources of information. Each task force and committee chair will designate a point-person to ensure information about task force and committee reaches Chamber staff in time for publication.
