Legislative Summit: Celebrating 10 Years

Join us for the region's most anticipated advocacy event of the year! This event is brought to you by the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce.

The national political landscape in Washington D.C. can seem like a distant distraction from life in Lincoln, but the policies coming out of the nation's capital have a real effect on our local economy.  As Nebraskan's we are lucky to have three House representatives and two Senators who work together to best represent our state and provide a civil atmosphere in which to discuss our nation's politics. As your advocate at the local, state and federal levels of government, we strive to provide an avenue each year for Chamber members to hear directly from Nebraska's Congressional delegation and drill-down on issues affecting your business.

In addition to hearing from Senators and Congressmen, the event will feature lunch with keynote speaker Suzanne Clark, Senior Executive Vice President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the largest business federation in the world. Ms. Clark focuses on strategy, government relations and market innovation working in support of its more than 3 million member companies internationally. She leads a wide range of policy and operational initiatives at the quarter billion dollar organization, and is the first Senior Executive Vice President in the institution’s 104-year history. We look forward to hearing Ms. Clark speak about workforce development, tax reform and trade working in support of the U.S. Chamber's more than 3 million member companies internationally.

Thank you to our 2018 sponsors!
