The Gardner Area Chamber of Commerce is changing its name.
In the future, the chamber will be called the Chamber of Commerce of Southwest Johnson County.
Members of the chamber board of directors announced the change during the organization’s annual dinner Feb. 19.
“After lengthy discussions about the importance the city of Gardner has played in the tradition and success of our chamber, yet also recognizing that new opportunities for continued success are emerging in the city of Edgerton, the Logistics Park Kansas City and New Century AirCenter; the new name was determined to be very timely and appropriate,” a chamber press release reads.
