Lincoln and Lancaster County businesses are invited to participate in two virtual events in October - A Procurement Workshop hosted by the City of Lincoln, and a Business-to-Business Townhall hosted by the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce. The events are sponsored by the City of Lincoln in partnership with the Mayor's Economic Recovery Task Force, the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, and the Lincoln Independent Business Association.
The events developed from the Task Force report released in September that recommends strategies for Lincoln's economic recovery and resilience. The report is available at COVID19.lincoln.ne.gov on the "Business Resources" page. The recommendations include development of additional opportunities to share information and resources among businesses, and enhancement of local access to City/County contracting opportunities to encourage greater localization of spending. The schedule is as follows:
