The Ladder: Nevada Builders Alliance CEO appointed to education commission

Nevada Builders Alliance CEO Aaron West has been appointed to the Governor’s Commission on Professional Standards in Education. The appointment makes West the first ever private sector representative to serve on the commission.


“Education is a foremost priority for Nevada’s building and construction industry and we’ve been working for years to put our state’s youth on a career trajectory, regardless of limitations or challenges,” said West.

In his new role, West will work alongside other commission members to regulate and set standards for licensing educational staff throughout the state. The Commission on Professional Standards in Education is the only regulatory commission that sets credentialing standards for K-12 teachers to ensure Nevada’s educators are both highly qualified and highly effective in the teaching of Nevada’s students.
