EDAWN luncheon to cover jobs update and 2012 strategic plan



Investors in the Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada and the local community will hear an overview of the region’s economy and a new jobs update at an EDAWN luncheon on Wednesday, Feb. 29, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in the Tuscany Ballroom.

Michael Kazmierski, president/CEO of EDAWN, will discuss EDAWN’s results in 2011, where EDAWN is heading in 2012 and the roadmap for the regional strategic planning efforts at the luncheon, the organization’s first community event since Kazmierski took the reigns as CEO in November 2011.

“There is a great deal of economic development work to be done; far more than a small non-profit like EDAWN can accomplish alone,” said Kazmierski. ”It will take a genuine team effort to grow our economy, an economy that will be very different than the one we now have.”

The EDAWN luncheon comes just weeks after the Feb. 7 release of Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval’s economic development plan for the state, based on a study completed by SRI/Brookings Institute in the fall of 2011 and outlining the roles of assigned regional development authorities in an effort to streamline statewide economic diversification.

Registration for the luncheon begins at 11:30 a.m. with lunch served promptly at noon. The cost is $25 for EDAWN members and $30 for non-members. Tables of ten are available for purchase.
