About the Academy

What is the Academy of Young Professionals in Omaha?

The Academy is an association of young professionals living in the Omaha area who are focused on growing our community, businesses in our community, and learning from each other in pursuit of a better tomorrow. Established in 2017, AYPO is an independent organization within the “Council of Companies” program run by the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce . (Click HERE for more information on the Council of Companies program.) We are open to all individuals, in all professions.


Our mission is to harness the power in professional partnerships. We believe its BOTH who you know and also what you know. To that end, we connect our members with one another in deliberate ways that educate each member and give them knowledge about other professions and industries that can serve to create a more vibrant and collaborative professional community in Omaha.

Our Goals for 2019-2020: We are excited to recruit a wide variety of founding members for The Academy, and hold a number of programs that help bring together professionals from different businesses, connecting them in a meaningful and positive environment that supports learning from one another.
