Continuing his commitment to outreach through the Ninth District, Neel Kashkari, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, will visit Bozeman on Wednesday, Sept. 5, to learn more about the region’s economy from area business owners, civic leaders, residents and students.
“Bozeman is experiencing growth and development that is unmatched in many areas of the country, and I’d like to hear from the community about what’s working,” said Kashkari. “As I travel across the region and as we set monetary policy for the nation, it’s helpful for me to hear from residents about the local economy, their concerns and their successes. I also value the opportunity to hear from students, who are our next generation of community leaders and entrepreneurs.”
Kashkari will begin his visit on Wednesday morning, Sept. 5, with a tour of Ascent Vision Technologies in Belgrade, followed by an invitation-only listening session with a group of Montana’s high-tech industry leaders. That afternoon at 2 p.m. MT, Kashkari will hold a free, public town hall meeting on monetary policy and the economy at Montana State University. MSU President Waded Cruzado will give opening remarks. The event will be moderated by Larry Simkins, president and CEO of The Washington Companies, and will be held on MSU’s campus in Ballroom A, 211 Strand Union Building, 751 Grant Street in Bozeman.
