HENDERSON, Nev. – The Henderson Chamber of Commerce will present “Fiscal Cliff or Not: Taxes and Spending in the New Year,” a presentation by Richard F. Castner, executive director of the Western Regional office of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The presentation will take place from 8 to 9 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, at the Henderson Business Resource Center’s seminar room, 112 S. Water St. in downtown Henderson. A Q&A session will follow.

Admission to the presentation is free for Henderson Chamber of Commerce members and $20 for non-members. To RSVP, visit www.hendersonchamber.com/events on or before Monday, Jan. 7.

During the presentation, Castner will discuss the fiscal cliff, how taxes and spending in 2013 are likely to change and what it all means to local business owners. Space is limited to 50 seats, and, thus, walk-ins will not be allowed.

Before joining the U.S. Chamber in 1991, Castner held several positions with John Deere corporate headquarters.
