The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Foundation announces the first installment of the Southern Nevada Business Leaders Forum on Wednesday, June 29 at Cili at Bali Hai, 5160 S. Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89119 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm.
At the event, community and business leaders will discuss the city’s impressive recovery from the Great Recession and COVID-19, including the recruitment of professional sports teams and significant industrial development. The discussion will also include how business leaders can support and partner with law enforcement in Southern Nevada to promote public safety and thereby, future investment in the region. Tina Quigley, CEO, Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance (LVGEA), will moderate a panel discussion with Marc Badain, Oak View Group Arena, and Michael Naft, Clark County Commissioner, District A.
Badain, Arena Project Partner of the Oak View Group and former Las Vegas Raiders president, is responsible for a recently announced retail and entertainment district development south of the Las Vegas Strip scheduled to break ground in 2023.
Naft is a strong supporter and advocate for economic development in Las Vegas.
Quigley, who recently joined LVGEA, works to diversify the regional economy through strengthening partnerships with regional economic development stakeholders and workforce training programs.
“The Southern Nevada Business Leaders Forum is a new LVMPD Foundation initiative designed to bring together the leading voices of the business community to discuss critical challenges and opportunities,” said Tom Kovach, Executive Director of the LVMPD Foundation. “The Forum will provide a venue for business leaders to invest in public safety to help make Southern Nevada a safer and better place for all, including the business community.”
