Now a webinar only: Portland Economic Outlook for 2030


The PHRMA board convened this morning via conference call to make tough decisions about upcoming PHRMA events and gatherings. As you know, we are closely monitoring the everchanging landscape around COVID-19 and with Governor Kate Brown’s new requirements to close all schools in Oregon beginning Monday, the board felt it essential to move next week’s program to a LIVE webinar in order to continue to put your safety first and foremost.

In light of all of these events, we feel that our community could use the support more than ever. As HR professionals we all take on the heavy load of communicating and ensuring our teams are safe and healthy. With that, this webinar is going to be a FREE webinar to anyone who would like to attend.

Additionally, all other smaller PHRMA gatherings from now until April 8th are postponed…

The PHRMA board will reconvene at the end of the month to make decisions about future gatherings as we continue to learn more as the situation continues to evolve.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Lastly, our sponsors continue to be wonderful partners to us an organization and to you as an HR professional. Many of them have resources that may be helpful to you during this time so please utilize them as you can.

Portland Economic Outlook for 2030

Presented by: Christian Kaylor – Economist, State of Oregon

March 18, 2020

11:30am – 1:00pm


The Portland region – and the city of Portland specifically – has seen superstar economic growth over the last 20 years. Where Portland was once a middle class region, today we are among the 10 wealthiest and best educated cities in the US.

We will explore the factors behind Portland’s economic transformation, and ask the question: with signs of an economic recession on the horizon how will the local economy perform when times get tough?
