John is a charismatic and well versed speaker; he captivates the room with his unique style of presentation. He has been making economic presentations on the nation and the region for more than 40 years and we are pleased to have him back this year. John Mitchell received his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon and was a Professor of Economics at Boise State University for 13 years before joining U.S. Bancorp where he was Chief Economist / Western Region Economist until 2007. John was a member of the Western Blue Chip Forecast Panel, a Trustee of Aquila Tax Free Trust of Oregon and a board member of Oregon Mutual Insurance Company, Western Capital Corporation and Northwest Bank.
We’re excited to hear his views on the economy in the coming year as well as his fascinating insight on key economic trends driving business at local and national levels. John will also address questions currently on many business leaders’ minds, such as “Why can’t I find qualified people?” and “What happens when my employees can’t afford to live here?”
