Giving Thanks and Looking Forward


At this time of year, it’s usual to give thanks for all the good things that have happened, and to look forward to the future with optimism and hope. That’s a lot harder this year than it has previously been, but as I look back at 2020, some positives still stand out.


The PPP loan program not only helped thousands of small businesses in Nevada, but also introduced our bank to many new clients. We hope to nurture these new contacts and grow them into long-term, mutually beneficial relationships.


Despite the fact that many Nevadans are still unemployed or underemployed, the overall employment numbers are improving.


It looks like a COVID-19 vaccine will be available in the near future, which will offer hope, not only to Nevada residents, but also to the state’s resort and tourism industry.


Allegiant Stadium has been completed and will be ready for major sporting events as soon as restrictions are lifted.


Both universities now have new presidents, and there’s also a new dean at UNLV’s Lee Business School.

Nonprofits across the state have stepped up to help those most in need, with support from their communities and business partners.


Speaking for the executive committee at Nevada State Bank, we’re thankful for our clients, our communities and our wonderful group of colleagues, who have proved how resilient they are in adapting to the challenges presented by the current situation.


We’re thankful for the individuals and families who have placed their trust in Nevada State Bank -- whether they joined us early in our 60-year history or have recently become clients.


We’re thankful for Nevada’s businesses, which are continuing to employ and serve Nevadans during these difficult times.


We are seeing positive signs for the economy in 2021, but one thing is certain: whatever the future holds, Nevada State Bank will be here, doing our best to serve our clients and our communities. It’s what we’ve done since 1959, and we pledge to continue that proud tradition. 


Best regards,
