The Corvallis business landscape continues to evolve ever faster, as global shifts rearrange whole economic sectors, and we all wonder what future commerce and work will look like, locally.
The answers to these questions effect the fabric of our daily lives, and our very wellbeing as individuals. Think of it this way: Visit any community, and often what you will notice first is its businesses, such as shops and cafes. Living in that community, you will experience the increasingly rapid shifts in those businesses, and the substantial impact commerce has generally on the viability of any city.
Our March City Club of Corvallis Lunch brings together panelists for whom these issues are a daily pursuit:
Cooper Whitman, Corvallis Chamber of Commerce President/CEO
Jennifer Moreland, Downtown Corvallis Association Executive Director
Kate Porsche, City of Corvallis Economic Development Manager
Echo Alexander, Corvallis Independent Business Alliance
Please stay tuned, as other panelists may well be added.
