Nevada Resort Association (NRA) Chairman Corey Sanders, chief operations officer of MGM Resorts International, announced that the NRA’s board of directors elected Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president of government relations and corporate responsibility for Caesars Entertainment, as incoming board chairwoman at its annual meeting.

The board also elected Scott Nielson, chief development officer for Station Casinos, as vice chairman of the board. The newly elected officers will serve two-year terms.

The NRA is the primary advocate for Nevada’s gaming and tourism industry. Established in 1965, the NRA represents the state’s largest industry and provides information, perspective and industry insight for decision-makers throughout the state. The tourism and gaming industry contributes 47 percent of the state’s general fund revenue and accounts for 28 percent of Nevada’s jobs.
