Cornerstone Reception Information

Wednesday, May 20, 2015, 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Union Station Kansas City



The Cornerstone Awards Program was initiated over 26 years ago to recognize investments by companies in Kansas City, Missouri. The selection committee, made up of EDC Board members, selects winning projects based not only on investment and new jobs, but on the project’s overall affect on issues like education, quality of life, and the project’s impact on the community and surrounding neighborhoods.

Because projects selected are chosen based on their positive impact on the greater community, be it through new jobs, new construction, investment in technologies, job preservation, educational opportunities, trade promotion or new housing, the Cornerstone Awards program reflects the complexity of issues surrounding economic growth and development. The EDC Marketing/Cornerstone Awards Committee will select the final award winners and awards are presented annually at a reception in the spring. More than 50 of Kansas City’s prominent corporate leaders sponsor the event.
