Members of the Nevada Consular Corps and the Consular Chamber of Commerce enjoyed a splendid evening of cocktails and sumptuous hors d’oeuvre at the home of Bruce Alverson in Las Vegas. The law firm of Alverson, Taylor, Mortensen Sanders hosted the event in honor of consuls serving Las Vegas.
Steve Schorr, Vice-President of Cox Communications, served as a member of the Host Committee, along with Count Guido R. Deiro and City of Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen. Mr. Schorr welcomed the honored guests, many of whom he has known for many years. Consuls present included representatives of Belize, Brazil, Chile, Finland, Poland, Sweden, France, Uzbekistan, Estonia, Ireland and Monaco.
Consular Chamber of Commerce Global Chief of Protocol Baroness J. Kathleen von Schaefer read a letter of congratulations from United States Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, addressed to his old law partner, Mr. Alverson. The letter described the importance of consular representation in Nevada and the world, setting the stage for what appears to be the first of an annual event.
