Find Out How to Do Business with Clark County

Small business owners interested in doing business with Clark County are invited to attend the fourth annual kickoff of a program that has helped past participants land millions of dollars in new contracts.

The kickoff for the 2011 Clark County Business Development/Education Program (CCBDEP) will be held from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. Thursday in Clark County Commission Chambers, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway.

“Small businesses are a major employer in our state, so they play a critical role in our economy, “ said Tom Akers, program consultant and president of Akers & Associates, Inc. “Many small firms struggle to gain access to government contracting opportunities. The goal of this program is to help small companies increase their capacity to bid and win new business, which can also increase their potential as employers.”  

Since the first CCBDEP session, approved by Clark County Commissioners in 2007 and launched in January of 2008, 130 firms have graduated with dozens winning a combined total of more than $6.5 million in new contracts from the County and other entities.

Plaza to Hire 800 Employees

 

The revamped Plaza Hotel and Casino needs to hire for about 800 positions.

The resort will be holding a two-week job fair beginning Monday, June 27, through Friday, July 1, and again Tuesday, July 5 through Friday, July 8, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

The job fair will be held across Main Street from the Plaza at the Las Vegas Club Hotel and Casino, 18 East Fremont, in the banquet rooms on the third floor of the North Tower.

Late last year, the Plaza Hotel and Casino began an extensive renovation project that includes new guestrooms and suites, a remodeled casino floor and lobby, along with new restaurants and entertainment options.

As the Plaza prepares to re-open by Sept. 1, company officials said they are looking to hire about 800 employees, including approximately 300 returning employees.
