Chamber offers Fargo professionals a chance to discuss the economy at the end of the month

February 6, 2012 by  

Through the Young Professionals Networking (YPN) to Business Lunch and the upcoming Economic Outlook, the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce will be taking a serious look at financial planning and what the economy really means to local business owners.

Starting with the YPN meeting on the 21st, members of the business community are invited to hear what Matthew De Vries of Edward Jones Investments has to say about long-term investing.

The chamber’s website explains the presentation this way:

“…Nowadays, are we better off hiding our “investment dollars” under a mattress or in a bank savings account rather than in our 401k or IRA? What will the market look like over the next 10, 20 or even 30 years? Do investments and retirement planning bore you or make no sense when you look at all the details and options available? Maybe the problem is that the basics and current environment have not been explained in a way that makes sense to the everyday person. This is your chance to learn about investing without being sold an investment or a product.” (sic.)

Another similarly themed event that should also require business card printing is the Economic Outlook Forum taking place on the 28th. Expected to go from 8:00 am to 9:45 am, Fargo business owners and entrepreneurs will be able to hear what qualified experts have to say about the global economy and how the impact those trends impact will have locally.

Whether talking about retirement or national trends, local professionals can choose between these events this February.
