LOOKING OUT FOR BUSINESS

The business climate may change frequently due to regulations, legislation, public sentiment, education, marketing and customer variables. RAN can help your business meet the current demands and anticipate the future with confidence. Since its inception in 1969, RAN has been a leader, a watchdog, a public relations and lobbying tool and a source of information for the business community in Nevada.

FORMATION OF RAN

RAN was formed for the purpose of uniting merchants throughout the state on matters of common interest. The Association is the leading advocate for Nevada retailers and has a reputation as one of the most effective pro-business organizations in the state. Membership has the added benefit of providing eligible businesses with their workers’ compensation insurance as the sponsoring association of the Nevada Retail Network Self-Insured Group administered by ProGroup Management, a full service workers compensation company.

ADVOCATES

Nevada’s Legislature meets biannually in odd numbered years for 120 days starting on the first Monday in February. During the session, RAN’s in-house lobby team works in conjunction with outside counsel to track all bills that affect the retail industry such as business taxes, employer/employee issues, wage issues, health insurance, technology issues, pharmacy related legislation, energy, organized retail theft and much more. However, RAN’s work doesn’t end when a legislative session adjourns.
