Representatives of The Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Blueprint Nebraska will hit the road again this fall, thanks to the hospitality of local chambers of commerce and civic organizations. The traditional “Fall Forums” will be held August 12 through October 23, 2019, in 30 communities across the state.
Attendees will be among the first Nebraska residents to get an in-person briefing on the results of the statewide strategic planning process, Blueprint Nebraska, in addition to learning more about legislative initiatives that could affect business and industry decision-making in 2020 and beyond.
Those interested in attending the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce’s traditional “Fall Forums” can consult the schedule, and contact the local host organization listed to reserve your seats. This year’s featured speaker is the Executive Director of Blueprint Nebraska Jim Smith. He will outline the vision, aspirations and initiatives adopted through one of the largest statewide, public input processes on economic growth. Blueprint Nebraska gathered feedback from 2,000 residents and leaders at more than 60 events across 30 regions of the state and received more than 5,000 survey responses. It also benefited from the insights of more than 320 advisors from across the state and diverse industry sectors. The result is the Blueprint Nebraska report, a strategic plan with measurable economic objectives and specific recommendations aimed at boosting prosperity for all.

Prior to Blueprint, Smith served two terms in the Nebraska Legislature and worked 30 years in electric and natural gas utilities. Members of the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry executive team will also provide a brief overview of the 2019 legislative session and help answer questions about proposed state legislation and specific impacts to various economic sectors. The forums also serve as an important way for the Nebraska Chamber to connect and receive feedback from its members.
In 2018, the Nebraska Chamber’s Fall Forums drew 1,300 attendees, including state senators. Click here to see the full 2019 fall forum presentation.
