The Greater Omaha region is composed of dreamers, doers, and leaders who drive our cities to new heights each year. In order to champion our thriving business community, the Greater Omaha Chamber provides excellent professional services to help individuals and businesses succeed—no matter the challenge. 

For those looking to advance their skills and become leaders in their organization, the Greater Omaha Chamber has a variety of programs tailored to fit each individual’s needs. From our two-day Leadership Lab to our 10-month Leadership Omaha program, we assist those progressing through their careers with the latest research, tools, and expertise to help them reach the next level. These programs focus on personal and professional development in management change, conflict resolution, leadership priorities, and more. Participants walk away with a support network of other local leaders and a toolkit to help them further their careers in the metro region. 

For senior-level executives who are new to the area, our Omaha Executive Institute is a great platform to make critical connections and understand the issues, challenges, and opportunities in the Greater Omaha region. This leadership program leaves participants with a better understanding of Omaha’s unique layout, including the civic and political structure and key decision-making entities in the region, and also provides new executives with connections to other playmakers in the business community. 

We also provide member organizations with a variety of tools to increase their business acumen, including our quarterly business retention and expansion surveys and access to annual and monthly research centering around changes in Greater Omaha’s ever-expanding business economy. Networking and educational events also provide pathways for connection across industries and those providing key business services. 

Our team is consistently updating Greater Omaha Chamber programming to better serve the metro region. Each year, we evaluate our offerings to ensure members and the community at large receive access to education and programming that utilize the latest research and expertise. We understand the importance of staying ahead of the competition and what that means for your business.
