MEET THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE PLAN

The work of Blueprint Nebraska is not being plotted in secret by anonymous powerbrokers. It is, in fact, being done by our Steering Committee – the very people you see on this page. People of differing backgrounds from every corner of the state. Each one brings a unique perspective on what success looks like in Nebraska and fresh ideas on how to achieve real, sustainable prosperity for all. And they’re not just willing to work together for the common good – they’re excited to do so.
