From Derek's Desk

Recently, I accepted the Vice Chair position for the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry Small Business Policy Council. The Small Business Policy Council evaluates and receives policy positions that impact small businesses which are then passed on to the Nebraska Chamber Board of Directors. The council acts as a forum for exchange of views and information that the Nebraska Chamber wishes to share.

Larry Kopsa, Chair of the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry Small Business Policy Council, along with other board members helped set up and review goals that the council wishes to accomplish. These include increasing member engagement and finding opportunities to offer education needs for small businesses. One suggestion I brought to the table here is our Digital Marketing Club. I feel that this club is an important asset to our area businesses because it provides education on topics that are up to date and essential to the success of those businesses.

A lot of my excitement for this position comes from knowing that I will have a voice that benefits Kearney by giving a stronger opinion at the state level. I hope to bring ideas and challenges that will benefit not only Kearney, but the entire state. I will continue to advocate on behalf of Central Nebraska and work towards an exponentially greater economy for you.
