The event is held annually to expose new and continuing Aviation Institute and UNO students to the aviation opportunities here at UNO and within the Omaha community.

Omaha Press Club Offering Discounted Memberships to UNO Employees

The Omaha Press Club is offering individual memberships at the low annual rate of $120 per person for faculty and staff at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The normal yearly rate for an associate membership is $480.

Located at 16th and Dodge Streets on the 22nd floor of the First National Center, the Omaha Press Club features a restaurant and bar and offers a spectacular panoramic view of Omaha.

The low rate is possible thanks to the University of Nebraska purchasing a corporate membership in the press club.

The corporate membership does include a $30 quarterly minimum usage fee if you don't use the club. However, if you use the club and incur $30 or more in charges during the quarter, there is no minimum charged.

The club provides a monthly noon forum series, professional development workshops, the annual Omaha Press Club Show, and Face on the Barroom Floor events, which are held four times per year.

In addition, OPC membership allows members to use the club for special events without paying a room rental charge and provides reciprocal usage of several local and national clubs.

For more information on the Omaha Press Club, visit here. For membership inquiries, contact Tom O'Connor, UNMC public relations, at 402.559.4690 or toconnor@unmc.edu. O'Connor is a member of the Omaha Press Club Membership & Marketing Committee.
