PMP Pre-Summit Sessions

Communicating Projections Data in a Pandemic

July 16, 2020
1:30 PM – 3:00 PM ET

The scale of the current pandemic-driven economic crisis is unprecedented. How are projections being utilized for recovery planning in states? Some stakeholders may not be satisfied simply hearing the models do not account for pandemics. This session will discuss how states are both utilizing and messaging their projections data. It will also cover the new State Choice methodology and associated software module in the Projections Suite; and how this approach can be helpful in recovery planning moving forward.

Forecasting Industry and Occupation Trends Beyond COVID-19

August 20, 2020

Projections data is highly sought after, and even more so in this time of crisis. Reliable and relevant short- and long-term occupation and industry projections help facilitate reemployment, economic mobility, workforce and economic development strategies. This session will focus on key forecasts for industry and occupation trends beyond Covid-19. Hear from leading experts on the current impacts of the public health crisis and how this will shape economic trends long into the future.
