HENDERSON, Ky. — Beginning in 2020, Kyndle will officially split into two separate organizations as announced in September 2019. The names of the two new organizations are: Henderson Chamber of Commerce and Henderson Economic Development. New physical locations for both organizations, new websites, social media pages and email addresses are underway.
These changes will provide more efficient services and a greater return on investment for both the chamber members and the economic development investors.
For the chamber side, it will continue to serve the business community in Henderson through network opportunities, advocacy and economic sustainability efforts. It will also continue to develop a sustainable structure of membership benefits, to demonstrate business support and to enhance our business community.
For the economic development organization, although economic development will be more specifically aligned with Henderson-Henderson County, the emphasis and importance for regional economic development – working with the immediate surrounding counties and neighbors in all directions will continue.
Economic development will continue to support existing industries, implement and expand workforce development strategies in the Henderson region, and communicate opportunities available for interested industry outside our region and state. Economic development’s strong working relationships with local, regional and state economic development officials will continue.
