CARSON CITY — Northern Nevada Development Authority (NNDA) will host a breakfast on Jan. 25 at the Governor’s Mansion with five outstanding organizations showcasing the importance sports and recreational industries have on the northern Nevada economy.

Lt. Governor Krolicki, Chairman of the Reno-Tahoe Winter Games Coalition, will discuss the important impact this extraordinary event could potentially have on northern Nevada’s economy. The RTWGC is comprised of a distinguished group of private and public sector leaders from both Nevada and California who are passionately dedicated to bringing the Winter Olympic Games back to the Lake Tahoe region. 

Another program, which put Nevada on the national scene, was the positioning of the Nevada Athletics program to join the Mountain West Conference in 2012. Cary Groth, UNR athletic director, helped make this move happen. The MWC will not only benefit all Wolf Pack sports, but the university and the northern Nevada community, as well.

Also putting Nevada on the sports roadmap, Michael Reynolds, vice president of the Reno Bighorns, will share his enthusiasm and future plans for the team and explain how the new ownership change, along with the team’s wins, will have a positive economic impact on the area.

Doors open at 7 a.m. on Jan. 25. Buffet breakfast cost is $20 for NNDA investors; $35 for guests. Reservations are required. Register online at www.NNDA.org/events.aspx.
