The eighth biannual Regional Economic Indicators Forum (R.E.I.F.) will focus on the economics of our region's water resources. Those who attend will be hearing about our area's current economic standing from students of The College of St. Scholastica, University of Minnesota Duluth, and University of Wisconsin-Superior.

It will be held from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Oct. 31 in the  DECC Lake Superior Ballroom. Advance tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door.

Keynote speaker, Stephen Polasky, will follow. He is a University of Minnesota Regents Professor  and co-founder of the Natural Capital Project – a partnership between Minnesota, Stanford, The Nature Conservancy and the World Wildlife Fund. Polasky was elected into the National Academy of Sciences in 2010 and has 30 years of experience in the field.

National Bank of Commerce, together with the universities, sponsors the REIF to drive growth, prosperity and regional collaboration. The biannual forums aim to give business and government leaders the data and analysis needed for strategic planning, expansion and hiring decisions.
