Please join us for our weekly Fernley Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors networking breakfast event this Tuesday, November 1st at The Fernley Art Center. Doors open at 7:00AM. We encourage everyone to arrive early so you are checked-in and seated by 7:30AM.

This week's speaker is:
Stephen (Steve) Rye
Lyon County District Attorney
Steve has lived in Lyon County and Yerington since 1995. His wife Cherie moved to Yerington when she started high school. They have one daughter who is a senior in college in Colorado. Steve has worked for the district court, the DA’s office and in private practice. For the last 8 years he has been the District Attorney. He grew up in Antioch and Oakley, California, and attended college and law school in California. He has been licensed as an attorney since 1995.
Steve will discuss bail reform and criminal justice reform in Lyon County and Nevada over the last several years. The bail system has changed in Nevada with a presumption that people who are arrested get released. The prosecutor must establish that they are a flight risk or they are a danger to the community before the court will impose bail. These hearings must be held seven days per week in Lyon County.
Nevada has seen other significant changes in criminal justice, including reduced punishments for many crimes; changes to arrest requirements for law enforcement; and, changes to criminal defense requirements. This has impacted Nevada and Lyon County in several ways. Steve will discuss some of the implications and changes made in response to these new laws.
There will be Fernley Ambassadors to personally greet you at the front doors of The Fernley Art Center and guide you through the check-in process. The check-in table will feature 4 Fernley Ambassadors to assist you with the check-in process, including 50/50 raffle tickets, Bragging Bucks, etc.
Non-Chamber members are welcome to attend and learn about the many benefits available to you, your business or your organization as a Fernley Chamber of Commerce member.
If you are a business owner/operator, we strongly encourage you to bring a Door Prize for our raffle ticket giveaways at the end of the meeting. It will allow you and your business to maximize your exposure at the event.
