IN BRIEF


Clark County Credit Union on Wednesday posted second-quarter net income of $2.3 million, a nearly 28 percent increase from the $1.8 million reported for the same period a year earlier.

President and CEO Wayne Tew said the credit union’s quarterly profitability marked a return to prerecession levels and is a strong indicator that the market is stabilizing.

“We feel really good about where we are positioned right now,” Tew said. “For the first half of this year, we’re seeing financial numbers not seen since 2007. Delinquency is down and loan growth is up for the first time in six years.”

Tew said he expects steady, positive circumstances for the next few years.

The Las Vegas-based credit union has assets of $496 million, with four branches and 33,000 members.

Electronics megashow will feature space for 3-D printing

When the 2014 International CES heads to Las Vegas in January, 3-D printing will be given its own stage.

Produced by the Consumer Electronics Association, the 2014 trade show, scheduled Jan. 7-10, will feature a new 3-D Printing TechZone to showcase the advancements in 3-D printing technology, a growing category.

The new zone sold out of its original 3,000 net square feet of exhibit space, so the association expanded it by more than 25 percent to meet demand.

The 3-D printing area will be in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s South Hall 3. In all, the 2014 CES will have 20 market-specific TechZones across 15 product categories.
