MARCH 12 FORUM DISCUSSES FUTURE OF BUSINESS AND WORK IN CORVALLIS

The Corvallis business landscape continues to evolve ever faster, as global shifts rearrange whole economic sectors, and we all wonder what future commerce and work will look like, locally.

The answers effect the fabric of our daily lives, and our very wellbeing as individuals. Think of it this way: Visit any community, and often what you will notice first is its businesses, such as shops and cafes. Living in that community, you will experience the increasingly rapid shifts in those businesses, and the substantial impact commerce has generally on the viability of any city.

The March City Club of Corvallis Lunch brings together panelists for whom these issues are a daily pursuit:

Cooper Whitman, Corvallis Chamber of Commerce President/CEO

Jennifer Moreland, Downtown Corvallis Association Executive Director

Kate Porsche, City of Corvallis Economic Development Manager

Echo Alexander, Corvallis Independent Business Alliance

Brad Attig, Corvallis Foundry President/CEO

Scott Weaver, Business Enterprise Center Board Member

This event is free and open to the public. Scheduled for Tuesday, March 12, the event starts at noon, though doors will open at 11:30 a.m. Address: Boys & Girls Club of Corvallis at 1112 NW Circle Blvd. The meeting will adjourn at 1:15 p.m.
