Council of Wichita (formerly the World Trade Club) was
organized in 1975/76 by co-founders Dr.Lee Nehrt, Dr.Dharma De
Silva & Dean Larry McKibbin at the Chamber with 11 area MNCs to
promote international trade & investment in Greater Wichita and
South Central Kansas. The WTCouncil originated in 1974 as
the International Relations Committee of the Wichita Area
Chamber of Commerce. WTCouncil was instrumental in making
Wichita a U.S. Customs Port-of-Entry & attracting the Wichita
office of the U.S. Department of Commerce, initially housed in
the School of Business. WTCouncil assisted in the establishment
of the M-A World Trade Center (presently Kansas World Trade
Center). Today the Council is affiliated with Wichita State
University Barton School's Center for International Business
Advancement [CIBA] and the Wichita Metro Chamber. In a unique
strategic alliance CIBA-WTCouncil linkage has organized and
conducted over 450 country/company trade events and over 110
International Educational seminars. In recognition of our work
and ideals to foster international trade the council has own US
President's "E" & "E Star" awards for continued export education
and service excellence.
