Members of the North Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce are working to assist small business and economic development in the city by helping promote business-friendly policies, the Las Vegas Business Press reports.
The chamber has formed a trio of business committees focused on economic development, small business advice and military affairs. The economic development committee will work with the city to help with business outreach efforts and develop programs to help expand area businesses, while the small business group will help small business owners form an LLC and better market their companies.
“As small businesses, we are tired of lip service,” Shaundell Newsome, the owner of a small marketing company, told the paper. “We need programs that actually achieve results.”
The military committee will work to improve business relationships with the military, particularly with nearby Nellis Air Force Base, and pursue potential business and contracting opportunities there.
Small companies make up the vast majority of the state’s businesses. Researchers at the Center for Regional Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno, told the Gazette-Journal that 98 percent of companies in the state have fewer than 100 workers, and more than three-quarters have no more than 10 employees.
