Chamber Membership

The Cape Chamber has approximately 1,500 representatives with nearly 1,000 area business members. We are one of the top five largest Chambers in the state of Missouri. John Mehner, President and CEO for the last 25 years, is one of the most respected Chamber leaders in the State. 

We have approximately 300 business leaders attending First Friday Coffee every month and more than 100 attending business after hours monthly. I’ve talked to many Chambers and very few of them has this level of attendance.  

Additionally, the Cape Chamber is highly involved in so many other important activities in our community. Whether it is working with existing businesses to grow, playing a lead role in tackling community workforce challenges, leading the women’s network or even working with the Missouri legislature to support pro-business legislation, the Cape Chamber continues to be involved in innovative activities that help businesses grow.

I don’t say this because I work for the Chamber, I work for the Chamber because of all these things. Over the years, this organization has grown into a powerful force, supporting businesses and their leaders in ways many Chambers can’t. We can thank the vision of hundreds of individuals for pushing to strengthen our Chamber. Hopefully those of us fortunate enough to be employed there today can continue serving the business community well for years to come. If you know any business that isn’t a member and you think they might benefit, let our office know and we will reach out. Call 335-3312 or email
