Forecasts are crucial for helping businesses make important decisions including strategic planning, investing, and hiring. Economic forecasting involves pulling together data from sectors across the spectrum of industries and making recommendations that help businesses and governments mitigate the innate uncertainty that comes from predicting the future. 

Join us as we welcome economist Dr. Paul Isely of Grand Valley State University who will explain the analysis of data and share the forecast for our local and state economy. 

Sponsorship Opportunities available. For more information, contact Colleen Schipsi
