Thursday is the last chance to buy tickets for the 2014 Young Professionals Summit on March 6 at the CenturyLink Center Omaha.

This year’s summit is unlikely to be as busy as last year’s event, which featured Grammy award-winning R&B singer John Legend, but organizers still expect about 1,000 people to attend.

Tickets for the all-day event, which begins at 8 a.m., are $125 and include lunch.

Lunch-only tickets are $75 and include a keynote presentation from Majora Carter, an award-winning broadcaster and urban revitalization consultant from the South Bronx neighborhood in New York.

Other speakers include Nebraska native Mike Smith, founder of Skate for Change and nonprofit skate park The Bay in Lincoln, and Erica Williams Simon, deputy director for Progress 2050 at Washington, D.C.-based Center for American Progress.

Attendees can choose from 18 sessions scheduled throughout the day, including various panels on leadership development, how to develop and capitalize on the art of conversation and how to balance a professional life with community involvement.

The event is coordinated by the Young Professionals of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce.

Tickets can be purchased until midnight Thursday at OmahaYP.org/ypsummit/registration.
