IVCBA 2024 Business Plan

IVCBA is the community and business association in Incline Village Crystal Bay. It provides a framework to support and engage our residents, businesses, and nonprofits, thereby creating a more cohesive and sustainable community. It is “pro-community” and aims to help our community stakeholders work together in positive ways, including programs designed to promote and support local businesses and nonprofits. The community website (IVCBA.org), SnapShot weekly newsletter, social media channels, and the LIVE.WORK.PLAY. quarterly magazines are the core communication platforms and content is primarily gathered from member agencies, businesses, and nonprofits. Signature events such as the Local Heroes Parade and the Northern Lights Festival bring the community together and promote member organizations. 

IVCBA business membership more than pays for itself in promotions and interactions with the community. Residents like the local news and events that bring people together. Businesses join because they can see that the work on community connection initiatives like housing and transportation is an investment in the future of our community. It benefits employers, employees, locals and second homeowners.2024 plans expand the number of interactions between residents  and community agencies, businesses and nonprofits. It also builds collaborations with Washoe County and agencies to bring attention to the  larger issues such as housing, revitalization and redevelopment that need those agencies to invest in Washoe Tahoe. Since we have no local government, it is critical that we align with Washoe County, TNTNV, and  hopefully IVGID to create a stronger voice for Washoe Tahoe
