Established in 1890, the Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce has long played a pivotal role in Fremont’s development. Today, with over 600 members and more than 1,100 active individuals providing leadership and energy, the Chamber continues to help guide Fremont to beneficial outcomes for its residents.
Led by an active Board of Directors, our standing councils focus on programs of work in Business Development, Government Affairs, Higher Education, Ag-Business & Natural Resources, and Membership Services. There are several task forces and other special initiatives that also support attainment of community and Chamber priorities.
Our Chamber prides itself on the progress recently made to strengthen its Leadership Fremont program and the introduction of the Youth Leadership Academy, which is aimed at challenging high school juniors to take a more prominent and active role in shaping our community. Adding to these professional programs, the Chamber recently assisted in the creation of a Young Professionals group, which will offer networking and social opportunities.
Nearly every corner of our community and its economy is touched in some way by the Chamber and its volunteers. Members connect, network, socialize and do business through the Chamber. With the recent enhancement to our Membership Investment program and the introduction of our new website, members have more opportunity to communicate, collaborate and add value to their business ventures.
The Chamber and the Diplomats Club continue to add value to members by bringing together our diverse membership with activities like ribbon cutting ceremonies, member coffees and Business After Hours events. And, with our increased emphasis on training, education and seminars through the Chamber YOUniversity program, members can get practical information to help them grow and improve their businesses.
There’s a lot more that the Chamber does and can do for you. We encourage you to stop into our offices at 605 N. Broad Street, or call to get more information. Involvement by Chamber members is the key to making Fremont the best place to live in Nebraska.
