What Others Are Saying About the IRC
Burns & McDonnell, IRC Business Member – “There are many benefits to being a member of the IRC. In the past few years Burns & McDonnell has worked to extend its international footprint with more than 50 locations throughout the world. The IRC has been a great resource to stay in tune with the international pulse of the markets abroad. As members, we have the opportunity to network with dignitaries and ambassadors from around the world, as well as participate in culturally enriching events, all right here in the heart of America. They have been a great partner to have in Kansas City.”
Commerce Bank, IRC Business Member – “The world is more connected than ever before. Information is everywhere and always available. But in order to understand the information and issues, and ask questions to clarify the ‘backstory,’ you need to hear from experts in various fields and disciplines. This is where the IRC lives and breathes, helping those who want to be better informed global citizens to understand the issues, ask questions, and move out into the world with a better understanding of everything that is happening around us.”
Stinson LLP, IRC Business Member – “The law firm of Stinson LLP values its IRC business membership because it encourages our attorneys and staff to be informed and engaged community members. Informative IRC programs provide valuable perspectives on issues that affect us all, and opportunities to network with local, national, and international influencers and decision makers.”
