Surprise Independent – Surprise Chamber to Resume Events
The Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce is returning to live events for the first time since the COVID-19 shutdown more than 12 months ago.
The chamber said it plans to capitalize on positive news about the economy by opening up the year with its popular Annual Economic Update.
“There is a lot of talk and economic predictions that we could see a very robust recovery,” said Raoul Sada, president and CEO of the Surprise Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Some experts are even predicting our GDP will return to pre-COVID levels this quarter, and by the fourth quarter of the year, the economy will exceed its pre-pandemic trajectory. This is welcomed news for our local business community.”
This year’s economic update will feature two well-known economists, Jim Rounds of Rounds Consulting, and Curtis Dubay, senior economist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
