“Today, Nevada finds itself battered by some of the greatest economic challenges it has ever seen,” Krolicki said. “However, we can use this opportunity to work with our state’s business leaders to rethink and retool our business practices, and identify pathways towards sustainable economic diversification and job growth in our state.”

The first meeting is July 12.
