Industry Forums: A Way to Connect & Thrive

by Karen Ellis | Nov 14, 2016

The St. Louis Regional Chamber’s economic development strategy has identified a unique set of regional assets that generate a vibrant and growing business base to better St. Louis’ robust economy.

Once a month, regional leaders gather at the Industry Forums to discuss one of three economic clusters where we are authentically strong and have global opportunity for growth: Financial & Information Services, Health Science & Services, and Multimodal Logistics & Advanced Manufacturing.

Industry Forums provide countless opportunities for Chamber members to network and discuss emerging issues and trends in their field. These luncheon-style events are held monthly with rotating focuses and topics. Topics vary based on current questions and subjects in that particular industry. All Chamber members are welcome to attend the Industry Forums.

The next Financial Forum on December 7 will discuss the DOL Fiduciary Rule and senior protection with guest speakers Lisa Bleier of SIFMA and Ron Long of Wells Fargo Advisors.

The next Logistics Forum on January 24, 2017 features former Missouri Governor Matt Blunt discussing the automobile manufacturing industry and its place in industrialized America.
