Small Business of the Month Nomination Form

Excellence is a way of life here – earned not given – and it should be celebrated! We want to hear the stories of the hard-working businesses whose contributions elevate our region and make it a better place for everyone to do business, work and live.
You have a great story – tell us! Our volunteer selection committee will select the best of the best to be recognized with a Small Business of the Month award at the Greater Omaha Chamber’s monthly Board of Directors meetings.
The monthly award is given to a Chamber member business that excels in the areas of customer service, community involvement, company culture and operating philosophy.
