Committees

MARC convenes a number of committees focused on a variety of topics. By bringing together key decision-makers, we can work together to find and implement solutions to the challenges our region faces.

Most committee meetings take place at the MARC Conference Center in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. Please notify us least 48 hours in advance if you require special accommodations, such as a qualified interpreter, large print, reader, or hearing assistance to attend a meeting. We will make every effort to meet reasonable requests.
