2021 was the first year for ENVISION. It was created to give Buffalo County students an opportunity unlike any other program available to them. Recognizing that there was a need to retain our next generation of leaders in Buffalo County, the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce team created ENVISION. The mission of ENVISION is to empower students to envision their future in Kearney through business relationships. Participants are provided with tours, roundtable discussions, and speakers throughout the day.
