YP Summit

So you can engage.
So we can hear your voice.
So our community can flourish.

The Young Professionals Summit is the only personal/professional development conference of its kind in the region. It’s about harnessing the collective energy of 1,500 YPs to empower each and every attendee. We know you want to make your mark on the community. Let’s connect that passion with opportunity as we educate, collaborate and engage at the marquee event for YPs in Omaha.

Mark your calendars on March 4-5, 2021 for this groundbreaking event.

Thanks to Creighton University Grad Programs and the Heider College of Business for ongoing support of the YP Summit and Young Professional Council initiatives.
 

State of Our City

Our City. Your Seat at the Table.

Envision the Greater Omaha of tomorrow and learn how we can collaborate to make it happen at our annual State of Our City event, an action-oriented one-day event designed to catalyze our Young Professional community.

2019 Included:

  • An update on Omaha’s recent developments, initiatives and tripping points
  • Active, facilitated conversations about GOCYP’s target values: Arts/Culture, Community Development, Transportation, & More
  • Engaging guest speakers
  • And of course, an after-party to continue the conversation and make new, long-lasting connections

INTRO

INTRO is our “Get to know your city” event to welcome new Omaha interns, transplants, faculty, staff and residents to the area through a fun and welcoming environment.

Newcomers: Get to know some new friends and feel at ease to be able to call Omaha your home.

Locals: Share stories and recommendations of the best ‘things to do’ in town. Discover new places or fall back in love with the old.

Everyone: Experience our community and soak up some summer together.

Attend An Event

We host, co-host and promote events all the time which are geared towards young professionals’ engagement, entertainment and personal development. 

Join the Council

Council members apply and are selected for three-year terms. They meet monthly and represent young professionals at a number of community events. For the past 10 years, council members have helped plan the Greater Omaha Young Professionals Summit, our flagship event.

FAQs

Do I need to be a Greater Omaha Chamber member or “young” to attend GOCYP events?
Nope. Anyone can attend a GOCYP event. We don’t card!
Is there a membership fee?
We are not a dues paying organization. We consider everyone under age 40 in Greater Omaha part of our group.
Do I need to serve on the Council to volunteer?
Not at all. In fact, many of our Council committees and task forces are open to anyone. Let us know your passion and we will direct you to an appropriate volunteer-led group or committee.
