2014 a Year to Remember for the Lincoln Chamber – Also Welcomes New Members

The City of Lincoln and the State of Nebraska made some incredible strides forward in 2014.  Much of our community’s success has translated into a successful year for the Lincoln Chamber, the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development and the Convention and Visitors Bureau.

At the Chamber, our year came to a close on the high note.  We were re-certified as a Five-Star Chamber of Commerce by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  We are one of only 77 Chambers to earn this distinction, out of more-than 7,000 Chambers across the United States.  It is a prestigious honor and we will continue to work diligently to uphold that honor as we work on growing Lincoln.  Other Chamber achievements of note in 2014 include:  

• Surpassing the 1,600 member mark for the first time in Chamber history.

• Earning three national awards from the American Chamber of Commerce Executives for our campaign to brand Lincoln nationally.

• Working to modify Storm Water Collection regulations to make development less burdensome for home owners.

• Extended sunset dates for the Nebraska Advantage incentives to spur more technology and start-up development.

Job growth and economic expansion played a large role in Lincoln being named to several “Top 10” lists in 2014.  At the forefront of this success was the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development.  The Partnership took home three awards from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) in 2014.  The awards recognize the world’s best economic development programs and partnerships, marketing materials, and the year’s most influential leaders. These awards honor organizations and individuals for their efforts in creating positive change in their communities.

The Partnership submitted three award applications and received the following awards in the 200,000 to 500,000 population category:

• Gold – SelectLincoln.org – General Purpose Economic Development Website

• Gold – Lincoln Economic Dashboard – Special Purpose Brochure

• Bronze – Inc. 5000 Billboard Campaign – General Purpose Promotion

The Partnership also played a role in helping several business expansion projects in Lincoln.  The expansion projects generated an estimated 300 additional jobs and more than $51M in capital investment in Lincoln.

Our economic success in 2014 is also directly attributable to the number of new events coming to our community.  Sporting events, especially youth sporting events, continues to be the fastest area of expansion.  Of all of the room nights booked by the Convention and Visitors Bureau in the past year, 80% have been related to youth sports.  Most of those participants are coming to Lincoln from outside of the state.  A list of new events booked in the last year includes:

• 2015 State Games of America • Women of Faith Conference

• Return of State Volleyball to Lincoln

• Sports Car Club of America National Finals

• Women’s Professional Rodeo Barrel Racing Finals

As we look ahead to another successful year in 2015, Lincoln’s momentum doesn’t appear to be slowing any time soon.  The Pinnacle Bank arena continues to book A-list acts, more businesses are locating in the new West Haymarket, and downtown Lincoln is adding residential units that should attract more young professionals looking to achieve an urban lifestyle while enjoying all that Lincoln has to offer.  Lincoln is truly on the move – I hope you will help keep it going this year.

Lincoln Chamber Accredited with Top Honor from U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Welcomes New Members

Lincoln has made headlines over the past few years with its top ten rankings and nation-leading low unemployment rate. Along the way, we’ve pointed to the Lincoln business community as the leading factor in attaining this national spotlight. The business community’s commitment to maintain a sustainable economy avoided the pre-recession bubble and the following economic downturn.

Our outstanding business community is also committed to maintaining a strong Chamber of Commerce.

I’m proud to report the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce has once again achieved a Five-Star Accreditation status from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. This is the highest level of achievement awarded by our national organization.

As stated by the U.S. Chamber:

Accreditation with the United States Chamber of Commerce is the only program of its kind that defines excellence in chamber planning and recognizes chambers for outstanding contributions toward positive change in their communities.

Currently there are 7,077 Chambers in the United States, 207 of those are accredited and only 82 receive a 5-star designation.

By earning Accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a chamber shows its dedication to:

• Reviewing, improving, and promoting strong business practices

• Recognizing leadership and outstanding contributions to the community

• Supporting the principles of free enterprise and promoting pro-growth policies at federal, state, and local levels

• Establishing best practices and staying in-step with industry changes
On behalf of our Board of Directors, I am honored to receive this great recognition.  Our thanks go out to you, our members and our investors. Without your dedication and support, we could never achieve this elite accreditation.

The Chamber isn’t alone in earning national honors.

The Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development was also recognized in November by the International Economic Development Council.  The Council is the leading voice in the industry today with over 4,500 members across the globe.  It’s safe to say their opinion matters.

The Partnership took home three awards they give out annually for Excellence in Economic Development.  There are 34 awards given by I.E.D.C in total and they honor organizations and individuals for their efforts in creating positive change in urban, suburban, and rural communities. Winners are recognized at the organization’s Annual Conference.

The recognition comes from marketing campaigns used by the Partnership to sell Lincoln to potential employers across the country:

• Inc. 5000 Billboards – General Purpose Print Promotion

• 2013 Lincoln Economic Dashboard – Special Purpose Print Brochure,

SelectLincoln.org – General Purpose Website

Both the Accreditation status and the Economic Development awards mark a year of success for Lincoln.  I always tell people we have something special going on here, it’s nice to know the leading voices in our industry feel the same way.

Have a safe and happy holiday season.

Start Up Business Awards and Internship Opportunities Part of Economic Success for Lincoln, Nebraska

The physical, geographical, and economic growth of Lincoln are easy to see. What may go overlooked is Lincoln’s growth as a home to start-up software and technology companies. Most of these businesses don’t have large storefronts or flashy neon signs announcing their presence, but what they lack in visibility to the general public, they more than make up for in innovation, workforce, and recognition from their peers as industry leaders in the technology revolution.

The latest recognition for Lincoln’s start up success comes from Silicon Prairie News, a digital media company dedicated to highlighting and supporting entrepreneurs and investors. Founded in 2008, the highly respected publication calls itself “an emerging model for grassroots entrepreneurial ecosystem development in and around Omaha, Des Moines and Kansas City.”

Their annual award ceremony was recently held in Kansas City and three local individuals came home with awards, along with one Lincoln Company.

• Bulu Box – a company that offers sample boxes of vitamins and supplements, won the award for Best Culture

• Caitlin Bales – Bulu Box Chief Technology Officer was named Technologist of the Year

• Brian Ardinger – managing director of NMotion, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s startup accelerator, was named one of three Silicon Prairie Champions

• Katie Hottovy of Lincoln healthcare software startup Nobl was named Designer of the Year.

These awards are not only a great win for them as individuals; they are also a great win for Lincoln’s start up community.  If we don’t take the time and effort to nurture these home grown businesses we could be losing out on the next generation of Lincoln’s workforce.

Nurturing the next generation is also the reason behind another project we’ve worked on at the Chamber and the Partnership.  A little over one year ago, we began working with the Lincoln Human Resource Management Association (LHRMA) on a project called 1st Job Lincoln. The initiative was designed to give high school students the opportunity to have their first paid professional position at a company right here in Lincoln.  Unlike a “typical” summer job, 1st Job Lincoln gives students the chance to explore and experience what a day is like in their chosen career field before they get to college.  From an employer’s perspective, the project is a great opportunity to put a brand or business name at the front of a potential future employee’s mind so that when they graduate, their first thought is to try and rejoin that company and stay here in Lincoln.

To make the project work, LHRMA need “Champion Employers” to lead the way in welcoming these students into their businesses.  I am proud to report 14 employers embraced the challenge this year: Agilx, Assurity Life Insurance Company, Cabela’s, Duncan Aviation, Kaplan University-Lincoln, Lambert Vet Supply, NCEE Labs, Nebraska Department of Correctional Services, Phoenix Web Group, Powderhook, Inc., Tabitha Health Care, Talent Plus, Inc., TMCO, Inc., and UNL-College of Business Administration.

Again, I want to say thank you to these businesses for doing their best to keep Lincoln’s best and brightest here at home and contributing to the local economy.  Have a great month.

Fly Lincoln First – Lincoln, Nebraska’s Airport Continues to Offer Great Service and New Flights

One question I am frequently asked is in regard to the Lincoln Airport and air service in and out of Lincoln. I want to share with you my response.

Air service in Lincoln is good and getting better.

The Lincoln Airport has flights to Chicago, Minneapolis, and Denver. Quite frankly, you can get to and from just about anywhere you want to go by traveling from Lincoln. For some travelers, the flight times might not always be perfect, but the service is there to use and it is convenient.

The missing link in the airport’s destination options has always been a flight south. If you are headed to Charlotte, Orlando, or New Orleans, your journey could take you any number of ways, flying you east, west, or even further north just to get south.

I’m happy to say, that problem should be solved this month.  Beginning in September, Delta has agreed to add a flight to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta.  The flight departs daily from Lincoln at 7:00 a.m. and will arrive in Atlanta at 10:17 a.m.  The return flight leaves Atlanta at 7:15 p.m. and lands in Lincoln at 8:42 p.m. central time.  By utilizing the service, you will be able to make connecting flights to a number of new final destinations including: Boston, New Orleans, Tampa, Cancun, the Caribbean, and South America.  The new flight and its added final destinations should make it easier for business travelers and recreational travelers alike to gain more flexibility in their schedules.

We must utilize the new service to keep it. If our initial instinct is to look at flights out of Omaha, we will never improve or even maintain what we have now. Again, we can either use it – or lose it.

I want to come back to the word convenient I used earlier.  Everyone’s situation is different, but for me short wait times, close parking access, and few security hassles are worth any minuscule cost differences between flying out of Lincoln versus flying out of Omaha.

For a true cost comparison, you have to ask yourself, “How much is my time worth?” To illustrate my point, go the Lincoln Airport’s website (www.lincolnairport.com) and take their LNK vs. OMA challenge.  The app, located about half-way down the right side of the page, will ask you questions about your length of stay, your mileage costs, and how much you value your time. It will then add those costs to the price of a ticket out of Omaha for the same flight and give you the “real cost” of flying out of Omaha. The final cost comparison may not be as different as you think.

Can the Lincoln Airport improve? The answer is yes. Can we all help in making it better by utilizing the good service we have today? Again, the answer is yes!

As your Chamber President, I am asking you to fly Lincoln first!

Latest Economic Report Details Lincoln, Nebraska’s Areas of Success and Areas of Need

Lincoln’s economic status continues on an upward trend and quite frankly, there is no better time to be in Lincoln, Nebraska.

I am confident in that statement because each year we validate our positive outlook with facts and figures from one of the State’s leading economists and with feedback from local business owners. The date we compile forms our annual Business Conditions and Indicators Report.

The Business Conditions section of the report is the compilation of data obtained through visits and interviews with Lincoln primary employers. The second section of the report is the Annual Business Indicators section prepared by Dr. Eric Thompson of the UNL Bureau of Business Research. The report examines both the recent and longer-term trends in the local economy in 2013, as well as the last decade for aggregate indicators.

We time the release of the report with our annual Economic Development Breakfast, which we held in June. The 2014 report reaffirms our assertion that Lincoln is one of the best places in the nation to do business.

You can view the full report by visiting the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development’s website at www.selectlincoln.org.

A few of the numbers that stand out from the surveys:

• Various measures point to businesses meeting or exceeding pre-recession production
• Totals sales, market share, and international sales are increasing
• Product lines are expected to expand
• Private investment in research and development is expected to stay the same

• 58% of those surveyed plan to expand, renovate, or re-invest in the next three years
• Plans call for $122M investment and roughly 800 jobs

• Top Strength of the Community
• Worker quality – 76%

• Top Weakness
• Skilled worker availability – 38%

• Best Business Condition
• Strong employee work ethic
• Strong educational system

• Conditions That Need Improving
• Transportation
• Community infrastructure
• Taxes

The report is designed to serve only as a point of reference for our community; a kind of yearly report card if you will regarding the perceptions of doing business in Lincoln. We underwrite the report to help elected officials shape policies that allow businesses to be more competitive with their peers across the country.  And as we all know, in today’s hyper-competitive, technologically-advanced, global marketplace, staying ahead of the competition means staying in business.
