Join the Thurston County Chamber’s August Forum and hear from Washington State’s Economist, Steve Lerch, Ph.D., on Wednesday, August 10 at 11:00 a.m. at the Olympia Hotel at Capitol Lake.

Lerch’s presentation will include information from the US and Washington's most recent (June) economic forecast. He will share information about inflation, oil prices and the unsettled state of the economy.

The Thurston County Chamber will be hosting a South Sound BIPOC Expo where Black, Indigenous, and People of Color-owned organizations can utilize a display table (valued at $150) for free to promote their goods and services. Attendees will need to buy a $30 ticket for anyone attending, bring marketing materials and a representative to talk about your organization at your table.
