COVID-19 -  Registration
CEDBR is continuing to watch and plan for potential COVID-19 disruptions to our scheduled events. All 2022 Economic Outlook Conferences will be held in-person only at this time. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 restrictions as the events gets closer. If we are unable to meet in-person due to regulations, we will do the events via webinar. We are looking forward to meeting and networking in-person, but we feel it is essential to be prepared if we must do the event remote this year. CLICK HERE to see more on our COVID-19 safety measures.
