SUSTAINBLAINE’S ECONOMIC SUMMIT

SustainBlaine is pleased to announce its second annual Economic Summit on Tuesday October 8, 2013 at Sun Valley Resort to address a variety of local, regional and national economic issues. The program will begin at 9:00 am and conclude with a no-host cocktail hour giving you to the opportunity to network with your peers and to gain further insight on issues pertaining to you or your business.

This year’s theme is GDP & Beyond, recognizing that straight economic analysis and data provide an incomplete picture of the health and vitality of a region and it’s citizens.  In order to more fully assess the overall welfare of our area, we will seek to secure speakers and panelists to address three pillars that affect Quality of Place: Economic, Environment and Social.

As we have done in the past, we will use the popular interactive polling technology to provide instant and confidential feedback from the group giving the audience insight, knowledge and ideas as to how we can shape the future of our Valley.

9am-5pm with no host reception til 7pm

We’ll be back at the Sun Valley Resort, celebrating our 20th year.
