Leaders in Manufacturing

Since its inception, the Wichita Manufacturers Association (WMA) has been led by a volunteer board of leaders from manufacturers and regional support companies in the Wichita and South Central Kansas region. Just like past leadership, the executive board is committed to promoting the general welfare of the region’s manufacturing industry.
