Monthly Luncheons

The club hosts monthly luncheons the first Tuesday of each month at Ahern Hotel and Convention Center in Las Vegas. The luncheon doors open at 11:00am with business networking until noon.

Each luncheon features a guest speaker who shares information with attendees about conservative government and business issues. The President introduces all attending Republican elected officials and candidates, giving attendees an opportunity to meet and see those who represent them and work on their behalf.

The meetings end at 1:00pm, and many members often staying behind to mingle. The cost for a luncheon ticket through advance purchase is $40 for members and $45 for non-members. Members may reserve a ticket without using a credit card by selecting "Pay At Door RSVP-Member". This requires payment with cash or check at the door (no credit cards). Walk-ins are welcome on a space available basis. Walk-in ticket price for both members and non-members is $5 higher.

JCM Head Shot Red Rock
Jim Marchant has been a leader and innovator in the computer software, Internet, and telecommunication industries since 1984. He founded and served as CEO and President of numerous technology companies.

 

In 1994, Jim founded and operated one of the country's first Internet service provider companies. He fought Government efforts to overly regulate the new technology. For that reason, Jim founded the Federation of Internet Service Providers of America (FISPA) and served as President for six years. Under Jim’s tenure, FISPA formulated laws and lobbied the US Congress, FCC and State legislatures to enact most of the cyber laws that are in effect today.

 

Jim successfully lobbied against Internet taxation in Florida during the mid to late 1990's and set a national precedent for no taxation on Internet access. As a result, most state legislators and the US Congress passed bills to exempt consumers from paying sales tax on Internet access and online purchases. Jim also successfully lobbied state utility commissions and the FCC to prevent the Internet from being classified as a utility, keeping the Internet open and free from government regulatory control.

 

In 1999 Jim was appointed by the Florida Legislature and Florida Governor Jeb Bush to serve on the Florida Information Service Technology Development Task Force, established to automate Government agencies using the Internet to facilitate online interactions with its citizens.

 

In 1998 Jim raised approximately $17 million dollars to start one of the first VOIP telephone companies in the country and served as the CEO and President.

 

Jim retired in 2003, moved to Nevada in 2005, and continued to be active in politics. In 2016, Jim was elected to the Nevada State Assembly from District 37. He served on the Commerce and Labor, Energy, Taxation and Government Affairs Committees. After 2017 Nevada legislative session he was ranked as one of the top conservative legislators in the Nevada legislature by numerous conservative organizations.

 

Jim has received support from these prominent Republican leaders: Senator Ted Cruz, Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise, Congressmen Jim Jordan, Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Mike Johnson, Mark Amodei, and former Governor Mike Huckabee.
