Panelists are scheduled to include Bob McCormick from Arroweye, Gary Hiler from Designs for Health, Jon Fryar from VSR Industries, Mark Rauenzahn from Ocean Spray and Julia Henderson from Henderson Steel. The panel will be moderated by Bart Patterson, the president at Nevada State College. A mixer will follow the discussion.

The event is sponsored by Burke Construction Group, Harsch Investment Properties, BNY Mellon Wealth Management, Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc. and Ethel M Chocolates.

There is no charge for members of the HDA to attend the event but registration is required. Cost for Henderson Chamber members and guests of HDA members is $25. Cost for non-chamber members is $45. An additional charge of $10 will be added for walk-ins. The last day to RSVP is Thursday, Sept. 24. Cancellations are required by the RSVP deadline to receive a refund.
