Our Economic Recovery watch party scheduled (sponsored)


Our Economic Recovery in a Post Pandemic World – A Community Conversation Watch Party scheduled for April 3

Join Truckee Meadows Tomorrow for this monthly speaker series to learn about critical local issues that impact your quality of life here in the Truckee Meadows. For March/April we take a deeper look at the obstacles and opportunities our community faces in ensuring economic wellbeing to northern Nevadans post COVID-19 pandemic. 

Prior to COVID-19 northern Nevada was booming. However, times have changed dramatically. Learn about how we can jumpstart our northern Nevada economic engine in a post-pandemic world. Local experts discuss our greatest economic obstacles and opportunities during these unprecedented times and address specific topics such as impacts of the shutdown on local businesses, federal stimulus aid, specific concerns related to our rural communities and more.


Panelists include:

  • Patricia Herzog – Director, Rural Economic and Community Development for the Governor’s Office of Economic Development
  • Jeff Brigger – Director of Business Development for NV Energy’s business development throughout Nevada
  • Mike Kazmierski – President of EDAWN (Economic Development Association of Western Nevada)
  • Dr. Thomas Harris – Dr. Thomas R. Harris is a Foundation Professor in the Department of Economics in the College of Business; State Extension Specialists in Community and Economic Development in University of Nevada Cooperative Extension; and the Director of the University Center for Economic Development at the University of Nevada, Reno.

Each month local experts will shed light on the obstacles and opportunities we face as a community in areas such as Health & Wellness, Education & Lifelong Learning, Economic Well being, Land Use, the Arts & Cultural Vitality, our Natural Environment, and so much more. 

These community conversations are powered by the data offered in NevadaTomorrow.org – TMT’s new Community Data Exchange initiative.
