Will Colorado’s “Blue Wave” be good or bad for business in 2019?

South Metro Denver Chamber hosts economic forecast breakfast to provide roadmap


Regional business leaders are understandably uncertain how the shifting balance of power in Colorado’s legislature will affect their prospects for growth and sustainability, as well as how the new agenda may affect Colorado’s standing in the national economy.

To answer these questions and offer insights for succeeding in a changing political landscape, the South Metro Denver Chamber will host its annual Economic Forecast Breakfast at 7 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 18, at CU South Denver.

Colorado State University chief financial officer Henry Sobanet will share his understanding on how Colorado businesses will fare under the new legislature, and J.J. Ament, CEO of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation, will speak about current industry trends and the regional outlook for 2019. Lone Tree Mayor Jackie Millet will moderate discussions.

“This event will give our business leaders a roadmap of the opportunities and challenges we could see in the coming year,” said Chelsea Miera, senior project manager of the political consulting firm EIS Solutions, and the chair of the Economic Forecast Breakfast. “Our regional and state economy is a national success story, but we know the best way to keep our winning streak going is planning for the future and staying one step ahead of what may come our way.”

Tickets and sponsorships for the Economic Forecast Breakfast are still available. For more information or to register for the event, go to bestchamber.com or call 303-795-0142.
