From the office of Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman

Dear members and friends of NACE International:

As Mayor, I am pleased to welcome you to America’s most dynamic, entertaining, and intriguing city! You could not have chosen a better locale to hold your conference. I am convinced that once you get a taste of what the city has to offer, you will never want to leave. Las Vegas continues to capture the world's imagination as the city where anything is possible. With world-class hotels, award-winning restaurants, luxurious spas, fantastic
shopping, the finest golf courses, and spectacular entertainment, Las Vegas remains one of the most electrifying destinations in the world.

At its heart Las Vegas is all about making sure residents and visitors are well taken care of, treated courteously, and shown a great time. Beyond the neon of the fabulous Strip and the Fremont Street Experience, there is another Las Vegas--one in which we are building a world-class city featuring the best in arts, culture, sporting opportunities, and quality medical care. The new Smith Center for the Performing Arts has set a high standard for art and culture in our city, and I encourage everyone to take in a concert or Broadway show at this magnificent venue. Regardless of your age, a must-visit spot is the children’s interactive Discover Museum adjacent to the Smith Center. Buzzing with excitement is the Fremont East Entertainment District, a place with an energy and enthusiasm through its taverns, restaurants, and music venues.

The city also offers beautiful weather and outdoor activities, from top class golfing to opportunities for world-class hiking and rock climbing at the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, to skiing at Mount Charleston, and a visit to the awe-inspiring Hoover Dam at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area. If history is more your speed, you are in luck because The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement and the Neon Museum are two of the most interesting and unique experiences in the country.

I want to thank you for choosing Las Vegas and look forward to seeing you around town. Please accept my sincere best wishes for a most successful conference. I know you will have a fabulous time enjoying our great city and everything it has to offer. Now what are you waiting for? The party has already started. Welcome!

Sincerely,

Carolyn G. Goodman
Mayor, City of Las Vegas
