LINCOLN, Neb., March 30, 2017—Gov. Pete Ricketts will give the keynote address to a gathering of small-business owners from around the state on Wednesday, April 12, at the State Capitol.
“Our Small Business Days are an opportunity for Main Street entrepreneurs to talk directly with the policymakers crafting the rules and regulations their enterprises must abide by,” said Bob Hallstrom, Nebraska state director for the National Federation of Independent Business, the nation’s leading small-business association with 350,000 dues-paying members nationwide, including nearly 5,000 in Nebraska.
Co-sponsoring this year’s event are the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, Lincoln Independent Business Association and Nebraskans for Workers’ Compensation Equity and Fairness.
Small Business Day at the Capitol is open to all small-business owners. Registration is required and can be made online here. The cost to attend is $20 per person, which includes materials and lunch. Reporters are invited to attend free of charge.
