MOV Economic Outlook Presentation by WVU College of Business

MOV Economic Outlook Presentation by WVU College of Business
We hope you will join us for an updated Mid-Ohio Valley Economic Outlook Presentation by the West Virginia University College of Business & Economics

Esteemed economist Dr. John Deskins, Director of Business and Economic Research and an associate professor at West Virginia University, brought a group of students to the MOV last year and presented an Economic Outlook report specifically for our area.  We are delighted that they asked to come back with a new group of students and the opportunity to update the report/presentation for our members and stakeholders.  

Hear about the trends for growth, population indicators, economic challenges, demographics, retail and small business opportunities, workforce activity - while you might be thinking an economic presentation may be rather dry, please know Dr. Deskins is an entertaining and vibrant speaker and we are confident his students will demonstrate these same characteristics.

This will be a great in-depth and exclusive opportunity for our business community to hear firsthand from our State's most esteemed economist and his students. 

Please join us for this special lunch presentation on Wednesday, April 17!

The cost is $20 per person.
Lunch will be provided (please let us know on the registration form of any special dietary needs and we will do our best to accommodate those.)  

Pre-registration required and payment appreciated via credit card or check prior to the event.  Payment information is included in the Registration link below.  Space is limited to the first 70 registrants.



 (Update as of 12:30pm on 4/5 - if you use AVG or Avast for your virus protection, the system thinks the credit card processing used by Constant Contact, called WePay, is an "infected URL".  If you prefer to pay by credit card, here are 2 options:


1.  you can call us and we can register you and process the credit card payment over the phone


2.  you can register and pay on your smart phone.  I just registered to pay by credit card on my iphone 8 and didn't have the AVG blocking issue. 


OPTION 3: you can still register with the link above but instead of pay by credit card, you will need to click pay by check.  Sadly, I don't feel a sense of urgency from the vendor to remedy this situation.)


Update as of 11:30am on 4/4 - the vendor we use for the on-line registration link is having an issue this morning.  They are working on a solution.  If you try to register and it locks up when you hit submit, it likely didn't go through.  I'll update this message as soon as it is fixed.  We apologize for the error.  Thank you for understanding.)

The lunch presentation will take place in Conference Rooms 100A & 100B in the Workforce & Community Education Building at WVU-P (Building 8 in the attached map:
