Name: BBER Economic Outlook Seminar Finding Good Workers
Date: March 19, 2020
Time: 8:00 AM - 1:00 PM MDT
Event Description:

It is with regret that the Economic Outlook Seminar scheduled on Thursday, March 19, at Lone Peak Cinema will not take place as originally planned. The rapidly changing developments relating to the Covid-19 pandemic have made that infeasible. The BBER will process refunds starting next week.

But we are giving an Outlook program to the Big Sky community on that same day and time – in fact, it is exactly the program we intended to deliver in person. It will be delivered online, and is free of charge. We value the partnership developed with the Big Sky Chamber over the past two years to bring this program to the community and are committed to growing it in the future. In light of the profound economic changes underway, this program promises to be even more relevant and valuable than before. I hope you can attend and participate.

You will need a computer to attend. Those of you who have purchased online CE credits will need to verify your attendance by responding to messages that we send during the program.

You will see the power point slides each presenter displays, and you will have an opportunity to submit questions (typed in from your computer keyboard). We know that this is not the same as an in-person presentation, but given the circumstances, we think it will still be an effective way to communicate our information and hear your questions and concerns.

This link will be operational on March 19. It uses the Zoom conferencing software. If you have not used Zoom before, your computer may ask you to download and install the Zoom software. Once you do that you should be able to open the event and see the presenters and the slides. You can click on the link above at any time to get these initial steps accomplished so that on Tuesday you can just go straight to the event.

Here are links to two of the handouts for our event.

Working to Create A Positive Business Climate, the Big Sky Chamber is proud to partner with the Bureau of Business and Economic Research again to bring the 45th Annual Economic Outlook Seminar to the Big Sky community.  This engaging half-day of programming will provide presentations from economists looking at the local, state and national forecasts with deeper dives into industry specifics like tourism, health care, manufacturing and more.
The headline topic for this event is Finding Good Workers because in today’s knowledge-based, social media connected and information rich economy, the rules of engagement between candidates and companies have changed. The economic success of local communities and the entire state depends on making the best match between workers and workplaces. Montana has some advantages in attracting talent, but there are plenty of things the state could do better.
