Gives Members An EdgeThe Metro Chamber gives members the resources and information they need to succeed in the business community. Whether a small business or a large employer, the Metro Chamber has tools to help strengthen any business. The Small Business Solutions Center (LVChamber.com) is a new resource that allows small businesses to stay up-to-date with economic trends, get helpful business tips and even learn more about procurement and disaster preparedness. The chamber has also launched its spring semester of Chamber University, a free, interactive webinar series aimed at highlighting the business information from top experts that Metro Chamber members need to know to be successful.
The Metro Chamber also gives opportunities to engage with the Las Vegas business community. The Metro Chamber holds over 100 events a year, from mixers and luncheons to large-scale trade shows. One of its largest events during the year is Preview Las Vegas, an economic forecasting event and trade show that attracts some of the top business decision makers in Southern Nevada. Preview Las Vegas will take place from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 29, 2016, at the Thomas & Mack Center-Cox Pavilion.
It will focus on economic trends, regional challenges and opportunities for growing jobs and the economy. In addition, Preview features a trade show where members are given the opportunity to showcase their business as an exhibitor and create partnerships with other members.

The Metro Chamber gives members a strong voice in shaping the community and state. Its government affairs team works tirelessly to listen to members and hear their concerns about issues such as K-12 education and qualified workforce, regulations and ease of doing business and infrastructure. The Metro Chamber has been a leader in advocating for legislation to strengthen the economy such as creating a University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Medicine to increase health care providers and grow the health care sector; supporting Fuel Tax Indexing to build the roads and infrastructure the metropolitan area needs to grow; building Interstate 11 to connect Las Vegas to Phoenix; and supporting the core industry of hospitality and tourism to continue to grow our economy.
