2021 AFFPA Farm to Market to Table Conference March 4th & 5th, 2021
Join us at AFFPA's Farm to Market to Table 2021 Conference. This year due to Covid-19 restrictions and challenges, AFFPA will be hosting our two day Conference online through the Zoom platform. Go to our website at www.albertafarmfresh.com to see the Agenda of sessions offered.
This year our Plenary Speaker is Mr. Todd Hirsch who will talk to us regarding the Alberta Economy in 2021. It's fair to say that there's never been a year like 2020. But what lies ahead in 2021? With a great deal of uncertainty still weighing down the economy, it's difficult to predict how and when it will recover. What tools can help us understand the new environment that will emerge? And what will the new economy look like?
Todd Hirsch is the Vice President and Chief Economist for ATB Financial. He holds degrees in economics from the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary. For over 25 years, he’s worked as an economist at numerous organizations including the Canada West Foundation and the Bank of Canada.
He’s also the author of three books. His latest, “Spiders in Space: Successfully Adapting to Unwanted Change,” was released in 2017. Todd is a strong advocate in the arts and culture community. He is the board chair of the Calgary Arts Academy, and serves on the boards of the Glenbow Museum and the Alberta Ballet.
