Atchison Area Chamber of Commerce

The mission of the Atchison Area Chamber of Commerce is “To foster the prosperity of Atchison businesses, to enhance the quality of life and to focus on promotion of Atchison as a great place to live, work, raise a family and visit.”

Established in 1919, the Chamber continues to be the leading business organization of the community. With the support of more than 300 member investors, the Chamber delivers programs and services that make our community a better place.  In addition to businesses support services, the Chamber promotes the Atchison community through a variety of advertising and operates the Visitor Information Center, the first stop for visitors and newcomers to Atchison.  The Chamber also organizes several annual events with the help of its member businesses and organizations.


13_PlanYourVisit_webWith a population just under 11,000, Atchison offers the qualities of small-town life where there’s a familiar face wherever you go.  In many ways, Atchison fits the much sought-after all-American ideal.  It boasts affordable housing, diverse job opportunities, an excellent education system, vibrant arts, and sports and recreation for all ages.  Atchison’s residents take pride in their rich heritage, which dates back to Kansas’ earliest days and is evident in an abundance of impressive Victorian homes.  Atchison is picturesquely situated on hills and bluffs beside the Missouri  River in the northeast corner of Kansas.  The metropolitan areas of Kansas City, Topeka and St. Joseph, Mo., are less than an hour away, but it’s far enough from “the big city” to have its own charm and personality.
