How we succeed:
The shared vision of NE Chamber members invigorates our work and resolve. Together, we are vigilant and engaged in public policy. Through grassroots, government involvement, education and strong statewide partnerships, we build actionable strategies to keep Nebraska’s business climate competitive and economy growing. We deliver measurable results.
Our members are current and future corporate citizens and mainstreet businesses. They hire local people, invest, buy goods and services, pay taxes that support local schools and government, donate to charity and encourage volunteerism. They operate here because Nebraska offers a good quality of life, access to national transportation networks, a growth-oriented business climate, a skilled and hardworking workforce, a low cost of living, great schools, and more. At the NE Chamber, we pride ourselves on advocating to sustain and enhance that environment.

Members Talk Benefits
For more than a century, the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry has been the leading advocate of Nebraska’s business community.
Our association was established in 1912 with the founding of the Nebraska Manufacturers Association. In 1937, the membership was broadened and the name was changed to Associated Industries of Nebraska (AIN). In 1960, the organization helped organize the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce – and six years later, the two groups merged to become the Nebraska Association of Commerce & Industry (NACI). In 1988, NACI changed its name to the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry to demonstrate that the organization was clearly the state’s chamber of commerce.
Today, the Nebraska Chamber represents over1000 corporate members statewide, with businesses of every variety and size as members. Membership also includes nearly 70 local chambers of commerce, as well as several trade and professional associations.
Located just two blocks from the Nebraska State Capitol, the State Chamber is headquartered at 1128 Lincoln Mall. The professional staff effectively works with Nebraska’s Legislature, as well as the executive branch, on issues affecting the business community. The Nebraska Chamber is also affiliated with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers.
