November 2014 Newsletter
The Business Community Spoke!


The MARGIN TAX was DEFEATED, and the Legislature upended! 


In what turned out to be historically low turnout, for any election, the business community came forward and not only defeated one of the worst proposals, ever to appear on a ballot, but made sure the 2015 legislative session will be one that reinforces a positive and robust business climate and culture in Nevada; for years to come.  Thank you for standing with BAWN on this issue.  We will continue to advocate on behalf of the construction industry and business community going forward; so stay involved and informed...


Big news at BAWN!


Our membership continues to grow at an amazing rate!  

Thank you and Welcome to our new members for October: 

24/7 Electrical Services (Las Vegas); Gabil Construction (Reno); Robert Freetly Construction Inc. (Gardnerville); Sizelove Construction & Development (Gardnerville); KLS Planning & Design (Reno); High Desert Gold (Reno)



BAWN reduces fees! 

Understanding the pressure on businesses to participate in multiple organizations, within our communities, the BAWN Board of Directors unanimously voted to cut our membership dues in half; that's only $250 per year.  This allows you to be a part of the largest state-wide construction industry organization, and demonstrates our commitment to collaborate, rather than compete, with other community organizations.

Board Members Wanted...

As we prepare for an exciting 2015, we have openings on our Board of Directors and Committees.  We are especially interested in expanding representation across the state.  All meetings can be attended via live video conferencing on your computer, tablet or phone. If you want to be a leader in the industry contact Aaron for more info.
