“Lincoln, for those of us who were born and raised here, is too often taken for granted.  That’s why it’s always a treat to hear from “transplants” who now live and work here commenting on how much they value the community, its assets, and its citizens, when they compare it to other locales they’ve called home.  Whether we’re natives or newcomers, this city has provided outstanding resources to enrich our lives.  The Lincoln Community Foundation is one of those remarkable resources and an ideal conduit to help us express gratitude for the opportunity to be part of the Lincoln experience.”

Rich Bailey co-founded Bailey Lauerman, Marketing Communications, in 1970.  The company has been recognized by the American Association of Advertising agencies as one of the top six creative agencies in the United States in its size category.  Bailey Lauerman serves national, regional, and local clients from offices in Lincoln and Omaha with a staff of 85. Rich retired as Chairman of the agency in 2007 and now serves in an of-counsel relationship.  A native of Lincoln, Rich devotes a portion of his time to teaching advertising courses at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's College of Journalism.
