Your Small Biz Update
From Clark County Purchasing
August 1, 2020

It is with mixed emotions that after 25 years of service to the Clark County Purchasing and Contracts division I am retiring on August 6, 2020. While I am happy and excited to enter the next phase of my life, I will deeply miss working with amazing small business owners like you on behalf of the County. 

I am proud that over the last decade, through our small business training programs, we have steadily increased the County’s pool of available qualified small suppliers, while also introducing those suppliers to other government agencies and large corporations that can buy their goods and services. It has been an honor to help so many of you learn the ins and outs of doing business with the County, watch you put best practices into action, and celebrate your victories as you win new business with the County and other agencies. 

Given the challenges southern Nevada faces to recover from the COVID crisis, it may be necessary to make some logistical changes with regard to SBOP sessions in the coming months. The County will keep you posted. Please be sure to watch your email inbox for announcements of any changes and, of course, you will also find important program information in future issues of the SBOP Small Biz Update newsletter.

While I am moving on, please know that Clark County remains committed to the economic growth and development of our community, which depends heavily on the success of small businesses like yours. If ever you have questions related to doing business with the County, please do not hesitate to contact our team by sending an email to [email protected]

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your business journey and for providing so much inspiration along the way. You have truly enriched my life.

In recent SBOP sessions we have coined the phrase, "If you had fun, you won!" Remember to truly enjoy the journey as you work to grow your business. May you be blessed with success in all your endeavors.

In deep gratitude,

Adleen B. Stidhum
