We are excited to announce our newest speaker for this year's Economic Outlook Conference! Scott Williams (pictured far left) is a producer and writer best known for his work on Santa Clarita Valley-basedNCIS, which has been on the air and filming in the SCV since 2003. In addition, he has worked on Miami Medical (2010) and Third Watch (1999).

Williams is co-founder of Shane's Inspiration, a non-profit organization that builds playgrounds where disabled kids can play with their able-bodied peers. He has filmed extensively in the Santa Clarita Valley and will be discussing trends in film and television, and how the Santa Clarita Valley is tranformed to represent locations all around the globe.


The Economic Outlook Conference, scheduled for March 8, 2018, features speakers that will help business leaders prepare for both the short term and the long term. Economic forecasts are important for companies that need to have a short and long-term picture of what the economic trends will be and how that will affect the decisions they make.


Designed to provide attendees with an economic analysis and outlook for the coming year, the conference will include national, state, and global perspectives, but will focus primarily on the trends and issues associated with the Santa Clarita Valley and the surrounding business community. Attendees will hear about topics such as demographics, employment, residential and commercial real estate trends, new developments and quality of life.

Williams joins our great lineup of other event speakers:

At the main conference, Mark Vitner, Senior Economist from Wells Fargo, will be addressing the national economy and touch on relevant global megatrends, and Dr. Mark Schniepp will present this year's Economic Outlook Forecast for the region.


As a reminder this year's event is in a new venue - the beautiful Valencia View Room at TPC Valencia. Parking is at a premium so we will be rewarding attendees who rideshare with a FREE drink ticket (to qualify you must use the designated dropoff zone).
