Glenwood Springs, CO Colorado
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado ” The Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association, Colorado Mountain College, the city of Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Community Health Plan are hosting the “Eye on the Economy” luncheon on Thursday.
The event will feature Colorado State Demographer Jim Westcott, who will deliver the keynote address on what lies ahead for the state’s economy.
“It will be good to know not only the state of the economy now but the projections for the next couple of months,” said Marianne Virgili, president and CEO of the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association .
The luncheon is free for Glenwood Springs Chamber members and open to the first 90 people who sign up, but Virgili said Monday that the event was already nearly booked.
“If they are interested they should call right away,” Virgili said.
After the keynote address, Lin Stickler, executive vice president of operations and innovative strategies for Colorado Mountain College, will moderate a panel of local business representatives from various sectors of our local economy. Representatives from the energy and construction industries, city government, education and other local industries will be represented, and each member will provide a brief snapshot of the state of their economic sector and what he or she expects to see in the months ahead, with a question-and-answer session to follow.
Virgili explained that it would be beneficial for people to attend this meeting not only to get up-to-date information on the local and state economy, but also for networking purposes.
