Wichita Flag. How did this resurgence happen?

As the marketing and communication team for the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce, Angie Prather and Courtney Sendall are the duo behind the Wichita flag social media accounts. What started as a spare-time project has evolved into a grassroots pride-in-place campaign, becoming a powerful microphone for those who believe in Wichita.
 
As proud Wichitans, Angie and Courtney enjoy growing the engagement on the various social media channels they manage and have won numerous awards for the Chamber’s communication pieces, including the #ILoveWichita and @WichitaFlag social media campaigns.

Courtney Sendall

As the Marketing and Communications Director for the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce, Courtney Sendall works daily on projects that require advanced marketing, communication and public relations skills. She enjoys growing the engagement on the various social media channels she manages and values the relationships throughout the community that she’s developed through her position at the Chamber, where she’s been employed for more than five years.

Her most notable accomplishment has been rebranding all of the Chamber’s communication tools, including a brand new website that is utilized by the organization’s 1,700 members, and she’s won numerous awards for the Chamber’s communication pieces and campaigns.

 In her spare time, Courtney enjoys traveling and volunteering with nonprofit organizations like Kansas Humane Society, Kansas Specialty Dog Services, and Make-A-Wish.

 

Angie Prather

Angie Prather is passionate about connecting people and creating communities. She’s energized by creativity, collaboration, curiosity and connections. Working in corporate, nonprofit and government settings, she has developed and implemented B2B and B2C marketing and communication plans in the manufacturing, transportation, museums/attractions, healthcare and membership/associations sectors. 

 Her current position as VP of Marketing and Communications for the Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce provides the perfect platform for promoting her community and helping people forge new and meaningful connections. She enjoys the challenges and rewards associated with projects that depend on creative partnerships and resourcefulness rather than relying on generous budgets.

Leading inclusive projects that involve people with different backgrounds and ideas, she enjoys channeling her inner “boomerennial” to employ new technology and resources to reach specific target markets. And she relishes every opportunity to work with people who question norms and seek more effective and efficient solutions.
