The Lincoln Chamber of Commerce (lcoc.com), in partnership with the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce and the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry, is proud to announce the return of our popular annual Federal Legislative Summit on August 8. This year’s event, which will once again take place at the Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum in Ashland, will welcome Nebraska’s federal delegation and feature an insightful keynote address from U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Director of Government Affairs Christine Scullion.
This impactful event has been presented by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce since 2009, when the idea was initially pitched as an opportunity to connect with members of the federal delegation after news of the collapse of Lehman Brothers sent shockwaves through our nation’s financial system upon our team’s return from a Federal Fly-In in Washington D.C. Moving forward, the Lincoln Chamber set the goal of hosting this exclusive event, featuring all members of our Nebraska federal delegation on an annual basis.
Initially branded as the Federal Fly-Back: Bringing D.C. Home, our first Federal Legislative Summit featured breakout sessions from each delegation member and a powerful keynote address from U.S. Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Tom Donohue. Building on the momentum of an overwhelmingly successful pilot event, we were excited to further expand our reach by inviting our Chamber partners to join us as event co-hosts. To this day, we are so grateful for the incredible partnership of the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, as both organizations play an instrumental role in the ongoing success of this event.
The Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum has served as an exceptional venue to present insightful, thought-provoking messages. Throughout the years, our impressive list of keynote speakers have discussed topics such as international and domestic trade policy, infrastructure and energy, tax reform, national intelligence and more.
Continuing our history of innovation and collaboration, we are excited to welcome guests to our 2023 Federal Legislative Summit and invite you to join us for this highly anticipated policy event. We extend our gratitude to our federal delegation of senators and congressional representatives who have always been eager to participate and share their expertise with members of our communities.
