Our programs and initiatives represent much more than the work of the MARC board and agency — these efforts involve the entire community. Dedicated people — like you — from local governments, nonprofit agencies, business and industry and educational institutions devote countless hours of time to the committees that guide our work to make the entire Greater Kansas City region a better place to call home.
Each year, we host a Regional Assembly to bring everyone together to recognize the hard work and milestones of the previous year. We hope to see you this year so we can celebrate together!
