The Chamber Blog


Last week at the Nebraska Chamber's annual meeting in Lincoln, Governor Pete Ricketts honored chambers of commerce throughout the state by proclaiming February as "Chamber of Commerce Month." The governor's proclamation, which was presented to the leaders of the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce Executives (NCCE), states: "Chambers of commerce play a vital role in shaping Nebraska's future by promoting the free enterprise system" -- while also providing leadership that helps create an economic climate conducive to growth and development. The proclamation adds that chambers of commerce enhance the quality of life for our citizens. Receiving the proclamation from Governor Ricketts were NCCE President Marion McDermott, who serves as the executive director for the Kearney Area Chamber, and NCCE Advisory Council Chair Dan Mauk, who is the new executive director of the Nebraska City Area Chamber & Developmental Corp.
