Scott Hall is the Senior Vice President for Civic and Community Initiatives at the Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce, a business association representing more than 2,000 organizations throughout metropolitan Kansas City. In his role at the KC Chamber, Scott is engaged in day-to-day work on the KC Chamber’s Big 5 initiatives – five big ideas to make Greater Kansas City the best place to live, work, start and grow a business. He also oversees the work on the KC Chamber’s “Healthy KC” project, an initiative in partnership with more than 150 Kansas City area organizations to make Greater Kansas City a destination for healthy living. Since its launch in 2015, the Healthy KC initiative has worked with more than 200 area organizations to implement best-practice workplace wellness policies, created a region-wide program to make Greater Kansas City “trauma-informed,” and successfully partnered with 25 local governments to raise the age of purchase and sale of tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes and related paraphernalia, to 21. This project, Tobacco21|KC, now covers nearly 1.5 million area residents and is projected to save thousands of lives over the next decade from death due to tobacco use.
