Economic Forum Breakfast 9/21/21

Thank you to the Lake County Development Council for inviting and providing a select group of students from local schools in Lake County an opportunity to attend the annual Economic Forum Breakfast on Tuesday, September 21st 2021 - 7:30am, at LaMalfa in Mentor. This event was at no cost to the school or students. 
Dr. Ted C. Jones, Chief Economist - Senior Vice President, Stewart Title Guaranty Company, who annually joins us from Texas, was back in-person at LaMalfa. He shared a lot of great information about the economy. He reviewed many challenges and updates from the previous challenging and ever-changing year. 
Dr. Gretchen Skok Disanto, a Lakeland Professor of Business Management and Entrepreneurship Center Director at Lakeland Community College and business advisor for the Ohio Small Business Development Center at Lakeland, was the opening speaker who spoke on the Role of Quality of Life Initiatives in Lake County’s Economic Development. Access to recreational areas was one of the areas covered and she shared plans about a two mile trail being built in Lake County to connect Fairport Harbor and Painesville Township. 
Students in attendance enjoyed both presentations and learned a lot about the local, state, national and world economy.
