Conference on basic industries postponed
The Nevada Basic Industry Conference scheduled this week in Reno has been postponed.
Conference organizer Tom Harris, director of the University of Nevada, Reno, Center for Economic Development, said no new date has been set for the conference, which will focus on mining, gaming, agriculture and banking.
The conference originally set for this Tuesday and Wednesday was postponed, Harris said, because of a number of last-minute cancellations.
This weekend camp event is for girls ages 10 to 14 from low-income communities in Northern Nevada and will focus on energy, sustainability, science and technology, engineering and math, as well as leadership development, communication, collaboration and problem solving.
