Join us on March 7, 2024 at Crossroads East Side for a morning of informative and thought-provoking insight at the 2024 Economic Forecast Breakfast!

Connor Lokar, Senior Forecaster at ITR Economics, will focus on the economic landscape in 2024 and how attendees can best prepare for the challenges and ongoing uncertainties. Conflicting trends characterized much of 2023 – some leading indicators were rising; others remained in decline.
