Named “Straight Talk with State Leaders”, this year’s fall forums are designed to inspire community dialogue on economic development and workforce needs unique to each region. They also provide a forum for state and local chamber members to engage directly with local state legislators and legislative candidates as the 2020 General Election approaches.

The NE Chamber is the largest, statewide business association and has proudly served as the voice of Nebraska’s business community to state leaders since 1912.
