Saw this on the news last night. . .the YMCA of Southern Nevada is doing something very cool.  For those Las Vegans who have found themselves out of work, the YMCA is offering a complimentary six-month membership.

With the unemployment rate in Las Vegas at 13.4%, I’m sure there are a lot of folks who would appreciate this offer.

According to what I’ve read, the value of this offer is $470.  The YMCA would like those who accept the complimentary membership to make a tax-deductable donation or volunteer with the YMCA (although there is no obligation to do so).

Over the course of the last several weeks, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time working on a presentation I’m giving tomorrow for the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce’s Business Education Series

Here’s a link to the session on the LV Chamber Website [Guess What?  Traditional Sales Techniques are Killing Your Bottom Line].

This past Sunday, I was reading the business section of the Las Vegas Review-Journal when I literally stumbled upon a quarter-page ad the Chamber ran for my session!  I had no idea!  A copy of the advertisement is below.  Kudos to the LV Chamber for spreading the word.

If you’re reading this and you’re in Las Vegas, I hope you’ll attend the session.  It is going to be packed with a ton of great ideas to help drive more revenue for you and your company.

I just read that for the month of May, Nevada unemployment rate rose to 11.2%.  The previous high was 10.7% in December of 1982.

In Las Vegas, unemployment went from 10.4% in April to 11.1% in May, according to the Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation.

There are about 155,000 Nevadans out of work.
