The fascinating research and perspective by State Demographer, Chris Akers, is back by popular demand! In the Spring of 2020, Mr. Akers joined CREW Northern Colorado for a data-driven presentation about the factors driving Colorado’s economy, followed by predictions of COVID-19’s impact. Attendees walked away with an arsenal of market intel that could be used for a variety of purposes, from general knowledge and conversation-starters, to insights that could lead to sharp business decisions. Join us for another exciting journey around our state as Mr. Akers, with the State Demography Office in the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), provides an update and another look at where we are today and where we may be tomorrow!
