Welcome to the West Kentucky Regional Chamber Alliance (WKRCA), a formal alliance of 14 counties in far western Kentucky. Our purpose is to provide a unified voice for local businesses in the region and to serve as a catalyst for regional leadership and action, bringing together resources for legislative, educational, infrastructure and economic development advocacy. Although the WKRCA is a newly formed organization, it is being recognized by area legislators, both state and federal, as a vital partner in their efforts.
To maintain equity, the Board is composed of two business representatives from each member county. These counties include Ballard, Caldwell, Calloway, Carlisle, Christian, Crittenden, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Livingston, Lyon, McCracken, Marshall and Trigg.
The WKRCA counties have an estimated population of almost 329,000 individuals and cover approximately 4,800 square miles.
With its mission in mind the Board of Directors has identified the following legislative priorities for 2012:
#1 Interstate 69: A 2600 mile interstate from Indiana to Texas that travels through the heart of western Kentucky
# 2 Inland Waterways: (a) Inland Marine Transportation System Capital Projects Funding (b) Kentucky Lock Expansion (c) Area Riverport Improvements
- Lifting the Moratorium on Nuclear Projects in Kentucky
