Stanley A. Zur, founder of the Las Vegas Executives Association, first heard of the Executives Association movement in September 1966, through Del Ross, then a Field Underwriter with the New York Life Insurance Company in Tucson, Arizona.
In April 1967, Ross and Jim Coleman (Director of the Tucson Executives Association) traveled to Las Vegas to meet with 25 representative businesses that had been called together to discuss the possible formation of a similar organization.
After a successful meeting, the charter was drawn-up in August 1967, and the first formal meeting was convened in September. Dan Broadfoot, from KLAS-TV (Channel 8; CBS Affiliate), was elected the first President. He served until January 1968.
Shortly after charter, Dan Broadfoot, Frank Martin, Stanley Zur and Charles Lecker (LVEA’s first Director) went to Tucson to observe the operation of the association. LVEA is indebted to Jim Coleman and the Tucson Executives Association for their assistance.
Since its inception, Las Vegas Executives Association has thrived and continues to provide the best resources for finding top companies when you need help for your business.
