The impact of Nellis Air Force Base and its servicemen and women will be honored next month at a business luncheon.
The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce will host the event Tuesday, March 19, at Texas Station. Major General Jeffery G. Lofgren, commander of the U.S. Air Force Warfare Center at Nellis, will be the keynote speaker and will discuss Nellis’ role in the military, as well as the relationship between Nellis and the southern Nevada community.
Nellis Air Force Base has an estimated $5 billion economic impact on Las Vegas. More than 8,500 military and 4,200 civilian personnel are employed at Nellis, Creech Air Force Base and the Nevada Test and Training Range.
Registration and the Nellis showcase will open at 11:30 a.m. and the lunch will run from noon to 1 p.m. Cost of the event is $50 for Chamber members and $65 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased at LVChamber.com.
