From Derek's Desk: Be Safe Nebraska

Updated: Jul 7, 2020

Helping you reopen your business is our number one priority. Keeping it open is even more important. The Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Nebraska Chamber, Greater Omaha Chamber and Lincoln Chamber in a collaborative effort with the National Safety Council - Nebraska on the “Be Safe Nebraska” initiative. The program allows companies to pledge to adopt best safety practices and focus on keeping employees and customers safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instilling confidence and promoting a safe environment is a priority of the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce as your business navigates new challenges in the return to normal. 

We encourage you to “take the pledge” to help keep our community safe in this transition.
