Engagement Council

Have you ever described your biggest weakness as being “too passionate,” “too engaged” or “too into building relationships”?


Welcome to the Engagement Council.

In this group, volunteers work with new Chamber members, helping them to navigate benefits and services provided, and encourage participation in programs and events to foster growth and prosperity.

Monthly meetings and ongoing education allow you to thrive in this role through first-hand experience leveraging the benefits of your own membership.

Interested in joining?

Being a member of the Engagement Council has been a tremendous experience. It has allowed me to not only interact with those who are passionate about the Omaha business community, but also have a solid pulse on the economic development activity of our region. The Council is a true representation of what the Chamber embodies as an entity, serve as a connector, a catalyst for growth, prosperity and overall betterment for commerce in the city of Omaha.
