The Shawnee Forward organization is in place to lead the Shawnee area and surrounding region, in both community and economic development efforts. Shawnee Forward brings together the resources, commitment, and energy of both the chamber and economic development organizations, and will be the lead marketing and business attraction/retention entity for the community. In addition to business attraction and retention, Shawnee Forward will work to build a stronger entrepreneurial and innovation ecosystem, to also support private employers in identifying, recruiting and developing talent, and act as a unified, collaborative voice to all of the businesses that call this community home.

Meet Us Online

During this time of social distancing we know that the benefits that Shawnee Forward provides to our members is more important than ever.

It is with recent events in mind that we want to offer a new way to interact with our staff. We will now offer you the ability to schedule meetings via Google Hangouts, Zoom, or phone. Use the Calendly box here to schedule a time to speak with Marketing and Events Director Jeremy Davidson.

For the time being we have closed our offices to appointment only. You can schedule an in-person meeting with our staff by calling (405) 273-6092.

Please let us know how we can best serve you in this time. We would love to hear more from you and adapt to this new environment as you are adapting to as well.
