Join the Salt Lake Chamber and Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute for the 2021 Economic Outlook & Public Policy Summit on January 12, 2021, the state's premier economic forecasting and public policy event that is attended by policy and academic thought leaders from across the state. 

The Summit presents an unrivaled opportunity for attendees to gain insights on the future of Utah's economy and the business community's policy priorities for the upcoming legislative session.

While Utah is experiencing many of the same challenges as the rest of the country and the world, Utah's leaders are focused on both our short-term recovery and our long-term growth and strength. This year's Summit will focus on Utah's current economic state and the ways in which the political landscape will help shape the economic future of the state and country.

There are in-person and virtual options available. To register, go here.
