Leaders from Omaha's powerhouse Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben Foundation are meeting in Lincoln for the first time in the organization's 118 years.
They'll be listening to University of Nebraska President J.B. Milliken talk about the university system on Monday and will hold a regular meeting.
Jane Miller is chief operating officer of The Gallup Organization in Omaha and is chairwoman of Ak-Sar-Ben's board of governors. The meeting is part of the organization's effort to extend its influence and participation from its Omaha base.
The Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben raises and gives away millions of dollars to scholars, agricultural and community causes. Its membership is a who's who of business leaders.
