PNREC 2021: Covid-Economics in the Northwest

May 24-26, 2021

Boy, oh boy, what a year this has been! After a year of economic challenges related directly or indirectly to the Covid-19 pandemic, wildfires, social equity, and the sudden onset of a recession, we all have stories to tell. Communities and economic sectors are experiencing and addressing these challenges in different ways. Even if we can’t meet in person this year, we will have plenty to talk about. PNREC will return this year in a virtual format, May 24-26.

We have an exciting program.

This year’s program will include a national outlook by Joel Prakken from IHS Market, labor market insights from Arindrajit Dube from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, a 2020 Census update from Acting Director Ron Jarmin from the U.S. Census Bureau, and state and province economic outlooks from throughout the Pacific Northwest. Of course, we will also feature presentations from and discussions with colleagues throughout the region featuring insights about energy, labor, and housing economics, data, methods and more.

Presentations, panel discussions and meeting rooms will be hosted by Pathable. Registration can be found here

Plan to spend only $50 for unlimited access to the three-day program. Sessions will be recorded and will be available for up to one year after the conference. Students who are currently enrolled in school will be able to attend the virtual conference for free.
