    V180 Media helps small businesses and nonprofit organizations share their stories to enhance business and work towards their respective missions.

    For our introduction to the Greater Omaha Chamber, we would like to offer new clients a 10% discount on all video and websites until June 12, 2012! Call Joe Frost (402)960-4969 or Jaime Bordelon today at (850)-712-4084 and mention that you saw us here on the Greater Omaha Chamber website, and we will honor you with a discount and introduce you to a great opportunity!

    Based on our experiences working with entrepreneurs and nonprofits, we know there is a strong need to justify ROI for any advertising or marketing expense. Their personal stories are full of passion, ambition, energy, drive and determination. These stories fuel each organization at its core, differentiate each from competitors, and ultimately shape a company's or nonprofit's brand, marketing and advertising; values, vision and mission.

    That being said, rarely do any entrepreneurs or nonprofits that we encounter even know how (or choose) to do this for Traditional Media (TV, radio, and print advertising) let alone New Media.

    We have identified some fundamental areas essential to getting the proper New Media Reactions for your business ROI. We look forward to working with you! www.v180media.com

The Conference attracts a national group of master artists who teach workshops, participate in panel discussions, respond to new work and present their work in venues throughout the community during GPTC.

    An overarching goal of the Conference is to build upon and to enhance the national and local community of playwrights. Through the GPTC, playwrights connect with one another and, in a supportive and encouraging environment, critique one another's work, begin to develop work together, form future creative alliances and share vital contacts and resources.

    Kira Obolensky - Based in Minneapolis, Obolensky is an award-winning playwright and writer. She teaches at Goddard's Interdisciplinary Arts Program and at the University of Minnesota.

    These featured artists will be joined by honored playwright Rebecca Gilman.
