    Moorhead, Minn. (March 2, 2022) – The Chamber is proud to bring its first Midwest Economic Outlook Summit to the FMWF region to address supply and workforce shortages, an accelerating inflation rate, interest rate uncertainty and the extremely unpredictable economy that our nation is facing. This summit brings together industry leaders, decision-makers, economic experts and 20 chambers of commerce from across the Upper Midwest to take part in a holistic, timely and critical discussion.
     
    This is an opportunity to learn more about where our regional and national economies are headed, examine factors that keep our area competitive, discuss the major challenges that might lay ahead, understand how businesses and individuals can stay agile and respond to this evolving environment, and hear from keynote speakers and panels of leaders across various sectors including: agriculture, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, retail and technology.

    “The health and state of our economy affect every, single, one of us. You might be a small business struggling to find employees and keep up with rising wages, a large business handcuffed by supply shortages, a consumer that is facing the reality of inflating costs for necessities, or a hard-working person wondering what your retirement account is going to look like tomorrow,” said Chamber President and CEO Shannon Full. “We are thrilled to be joined by 20 co-hosting chambers as we broadcast this event across the Upper Midwest. This summit is the first part in a four-part series, and we are looking forward to continuing the growth and momentum of this major series as we continue to address our region and nation’s most pressing challenges.”
