UVU: Utah Gov. Spencer Cox to speak at Utah Valley Growth & Prosperity Summit
Utah Gov. Spencer Cox and other leaders will speak at the Utah Valley Growth & Prosperity Summit at Utah Valley University (UVU) on Oct. 28, 2021, hosted by the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce, UVU, and the Utah Leadership Council.
The all-day event — which is open to the public — will run from 8 a.m. through 3:30 p.m. in the Noorda Center for the Performing Arts. It will feature leaders and stakeholders from business, government, education and nonprofit organizations discussing critical aspects of economic growth and prosperity in Utah Valley, including business, workforce development, transportation, infrastructure, water, housing, healthcare, natural resources and education.
“It is no secret that Utah Valley is growing at a rapid rate,” said Curtis Blair, president and CEO of the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce. “There’s no doubt that this is a great place to live and do business, but we need to be strategic in the way we approach our future. This summit will allow leaders and the public from across the state to come together and discuss resources and innovations that will keep Utah Valley strong and allow everyone to thrive for many years to come.”
A key purpose of the summit is to form a coalition that will continue to identify ways to create inclusive growth and prosperity opportunities for those living and doing business in Utah Valley. A signing of the Utah Growth and Prosperity Compact will take place at the end of the day.
Other speakers include Astrid S. Tuminez, president of UVU; Curtis Blair, president and CEO of the Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce; Scott Barlow, CEO of Revere Health; Kyle Hansen, CEO of Utah Valley Hospital; many mayors from Utah County; Dan Hemmert, executive director, Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development; and many more.
