When Your YPs Request the Day Off, Here’s What They Really Want…

By: David G. Brown
President & CEO, Greater Omaha Chamber

I understand the irony – in order for our young professionals to become more focused, engaged and goal-driven employees/community members, they need a day off from work. Call it a “greater good” – for the good of Greater Omaha.

March 9, 2017 – we’ll be hosting our latest YP Summit, the one event in our region that unites 1,500 YPs in one place and time to learn, collaborate, and become informed about their community. When your YPs ask for that day off, they’re really asking for a chance to:

  • Grow personally, professionally and within our community
  • Discover their passions and challenge their way of thinking
  • Learn where, when and how they can help Omaha reach its full potential
  • Amplify their voice and know that it matters

I hope you will give them that chance. Our 2017 agenda includes keynote Speaker Ari Shapiro, award-winning journalist and host of NPR’s All Things Considered, and the impactful breakout sessions our YPs have come to expect over the last decade-plus. Taken as a whole, the day aims to inspire, drive community engagement and help develop future leaders.

We know that empowered YPs equal a stronger team and more productive workplace for you – and a more complete community for us all. Let’s continue to cultivate and unleash that potential. Give your YPs a most productive day off on March 9. Want to reserve yourself a seat? As always, we’d love to have you.
