Leaders Dedicated to Implementing Change

Shop local. Support local. Take the pledge today.

The Lincoln Chamber of Commerce has always been passionate about supporting our local businesses. Now, in partnership with the Mayor’s Economic Recovery Task Force, we are challenging all business leaders within our community to allocate an additional 1% of annual expenses in support of local businesses in Lincoln. Residents are also encouraged to spend more locally and prioritize support of local businesses. This small allocation will have a large impact on the economic recovery of our city. 

As outlined in the Mayor’s Economic Recovery Task Force Report, evidence illustrates we can grow our community’s wealth by investing in local businesses. Read the full report here and utilize the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce Membership Directory to identify local businesses, minority owned businesses, women owned businesses and veteran owned businesses in our community.
