As our children go back to school and cooler temps arrive, summer seems to be coming to a close. It is amazing how quickly the year is flying by. NGIA will hold its final 2014 event: The Hackers & Snackers Golf Extravaganza. This great event will be held on Sept. 24 at Quarry Oaks. A 10 a.m. shotgun start will allow everyone to arrive the day of the outing; play one of Nebraska’s finest courses; visit with peers, competitors and friends; enjoy some of Nebraska’s finest beef; and head back home before 5 p.m. The outing will feature a couple hands of NGIA-Style Texas Hold ’Em, a Par 3 Mini Tournament where proceeds go toward scholarships, and a chipping contest that allows each and every golfer to compete for cash. We encourage you to join us for this fun-filled day!
Our Annual Conference and the Legislative Reception & Dinner will be held at the Cornhusker Marriott in Lincoln on Jan. 22, 2015. The Annual Conference will begin with an informal lunch at 11:30 a.m., followed by nationally known speakers on topics of interest to all businesses. The Legislative Reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will feature former University of Nebraska at Lincoln Cornhusker football and volleyball players. State senators will be invited to attend, which will give our members an opportunity to visit with their representatives about issues of importance to our industry.
Two great events wrapped into one day! Mark your calendar and plan to attend.
