2022 Spring Conference (Boulder, CO)

Relaunching the Decade: Supporting Innovation in Our New American Economy

This past year has transformed so many aspects of our world. Changes such as ordering groceries online, working remotely, and buying homes sight unseen through video chats may have changed our country’s economic landscape permanently. As we emerge from the global pandemic, innovation and technology that made life manageable during the last year will lead the way in supporting our new American economy in this next decade. As economists, we are poised to help government and business leaders better understand how these changes can ultimately make us stronger.

Researchers, practitioners, communicators, and other professionals will gather at the Hotel Boulderado (February 26 – March 1) in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. Our conference room rate will be $159 plus tax. Guests may make hotel reservations online in advance through Saturday, February 5, 2022.


Masks are required at this event, regardless of vaccination status. Conference registrants will be required to complete a waiver form. We will continue to monitor and adhere to the same protocols put in place by the city/county, and make changes as necessary. Please visit Boulder County Public Health for more information about the current policy.
