Description: Burton K. Wheeler Center

Helena, Montana, September 10 and 11, 2012

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, agency staff and others who work with senior populations 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 , is hosting a statewide public conference next month, featuring the recent findings of a coalition of Montana University System economists regarding Montana's steadily aging population and changing demographics. We also are honored to announce that Robert Romasco, National President of AARP, will be our keynote speaker on Monday, September 10. Please join us!
