Community Conversation: Resiliency of the Economy
 
October 9, 2020, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM,

The COVID-19 crisis has created recession-like downturns for many businesses.
 
Prior to COVID-19, markets were at an all-time-high, and businesses were expecting record levels of consumer demand.

How resilient is America's economy? Will the demand and markets rebound?

 
This isn’t just about COVID-19, it is also about the overall state of the economy.
