The Wheeler Center Fall Conference "The Graying Of Montana", 9/10-11, Helena, Montana

March 7, 2012View for printing

Montana is rapidly getting older - and rural communities are getting smaller - so what will Montana's population look like in 2030, and how do we prepare for the impacts of significant demographic change?

How might tax revenues be affected by an aging population? What information will policymakers need for discussions around the funding of education, transportation, corrections and healthcare?

Additionally, how might Montana's workforce change, and how can the private sector prepare for and take advantage of any changes ahead?

To address these and other questions, the Wheeler Center , in partnership with One Montana, will host a statewide public conference in September, featuring the recent findings of a coalition of Montana University System economists regarding Montana's steadily aging population and changing demographics. Please join us!

More information to follow. CEU credits will be available. Interested in helping sponsor this event? Contact Lisa Titus at One Montana, 406-219-7799,
