Keynote Speaker: Rob Dietz, NAHB Chief Economist
This event will provide an overview of market conditions as the economy struggles with the highest pace of inflation in four decades. The Federal Reserve is tightening monetary policy. How far will it go and what does this mean for economic growth, recession risk and interest rates? This event will explore macroeconomic factors affecting housing demand and the potential for a housing rebound in the coming quarters. We will also see how local data compared to national trends.
Former Denver Bronco, Reggie Rivers will start us out by sharing how important resiliency and a positive attitude are in these uncertain times. We will finish out the day with a panel of local experts who will share their experiences and the lessons they have learned.
Bring your questions for this engaging discussion of the economy with leading national economists.
