The Salvation Army Omaha Advisory Board Names New Chair and Vice Chair
Dave Bishop and Kim Weiss have recently been named the chair and vice chair, respectively, of The Salvation Army Omaha Advisory Board, which supports the organization's work in the Omaha metro by providing mission-based leadership and strategic guidance.
Bishop began his involvement with The Salvation Army in 2011 when he and his wife, Linda, served as chairs of the D.J.’s Hero Awards Luncheon. Most recently Bishop served as chair of the Omaha Advisory Board’s social services committee.
“I am eager to step into this new leadership role as the Omaha Advisory Board continues to implement the organization’s new strategic plan and works to raise awareness of the breadth of services The Salvation Army offers to those in need,” he said.
Bishop holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Wheaton College in Chicago and is president and CEO of Bishop Business Equipment. He has served on several community boards, including Children’s Hospital & Medical Center, the former Grace University and Camp Rivercrest in Fremont. He currently serves on the national denomination board of the Christian and Missionary Alliance.
Weiss is senior vice president of Corporate Audit Services for First National of Nebraska Inc. (FNNI) and its affiliates. As department head she has incorporated new processes and procedures and successfully restructured the internal audit department for better efficiency. As a result of her efforts, the audit department received the highest rating from the Institute of Internal Auditors.
Weiss serves on First National Bank of Omaha’s (FNBO) board of directors as well as on the Financial Services Conference Board, the Best Audit Practices Peer Group board and the Mid-sized Bank Internal Audit board.
Weiss joined The Salvation Army Omaha Advisory Board in 2014 and most recently served on the finance committee. She also serves on the board for the Omaha Children’s Museum and graduated from the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce & Industry’s Leadership Nebraska program in 2018.
Weiss graduated cum laude with a master’s degree in Accounting Business Administration from the Neeley School of Business at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.
“Dave and Kim bring significant expertise to the table,” said Jeff Beckman, executive director of development and liaison to the advisory board for The Salvation Army. “Dave is an ideal chair during this important season of progressive change for the organization, and Kim is an emerging leader with outstanding insights related to finance and budget strategies. They are both invaluable assets to the board and the organization as a whole.”
