Rob Engstrom and Ron Wirtz to keynote 2021 Economic Outlook
Moorhead, Minn. (February 2, 2021) – The Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce will host a livestream 2021 Economic Outlook on Thursday, February 18, from noon to 1:30 p.m. This year, two experts will share their insights and perspectives into two recent events: the 2020 elections and the pandemic.
Rob Engstrom, founder, Wolfe Street Partners, and chief political strategist, American Bankers Association, will present on the impacts of the elections; while Ron Wirtz, regional outreach director, Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, will use recent surveys and real-time metrics of economic activity to discuss the pandemic’s ongoing impact on firms, workers and the broader North Dakota and Minnesota economy.
“There have been many factors impacting our economy over the last year,” Chamber President & CEO Shannon Full said. “I hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to hear from these two experts as they provide us both national and regional perspectives on our economy. Both of our keynote speakers are known for delivering exciting presentations in a very relevant manner.”
As we all seek to support our local economy, we will be providing a $20 gift card to a participating member restaurant to all ticketholders. This will benefit attendees by providing a great opportunity to support a local restaurant, as well as have a great experience.
The presenting sponsor of the 2021 Economic Outlook is Cass County Electric Cooperative.
