CARSON CITY, Nev. - March 4, 2017 - PRLog -- Most training, methodologies, and discussion involving project management centers around managing a single project very well. In reality most project managers are juggling multiple projects simultaneously, and that this reality is what causes many of our problems.

As General Manager of the Reno Rodeo Association, George Combs is involved in multiple foundation projects in addition to putting on the annual Reno Rodeo, "The Wildest, and Richest Rodeo in the West." Our speaker will share best practices in managing multiple projects in support for Reno and the surrounding areas. The Reno Rodeo is a 10-day event which began in 1919 and is a PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) sanctioned sporting event. Reno Rodeo is a non-profit organization made up over 500 volunteers.  The event impacts the Reno/Sparks area economy with $40 million going to hotels, casinos, restaurants and retail. A portion of the proceeds from the rodeo go to the Reno Rodeo Foundation to support 27,000 children in Northern Nevada by way of 30 organizations that the foundation supports with its community grants program. The Reno Rodeo has been nationally televised on CBS Sports, Fox Sports Net, Versus, ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Classic. More information can be found at (

George Combs was born and raised in Caldwell Idaho and grew up in the country with horses and western way of life.  He owned a construction company for 25 years which allowed him to be involved with local rodeo and give back to community.  In 2007 he sold his construction company and semi-retired.  In 2009, he became Business manager for Caldwell Night Rodeo.  Late in 2015 the opportunity came up to move to Reno and become the General Manager for the Reno Rodeo.  He was hired and began his journey as General Manager in March 2015.  He has been married to his wife (Shannon) for 32 years and has 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren.  They truly love living in Reno and being part of the Wildest, Richest Rodeo in the West and the Biggest Little City.
