At an NACM North Central conference in 2010, then Minnesota State Demographer Tom Gillaspy forecasted a rapidly aging and slower growing labor force, increasing levels of retirements and increasing difficulties in filling critical positions. What did Tom get right, what did he get wrong and what wasn’t even on the radar screen beck then?

Join Tom at this year’s Fresh Ground conference for a review of his forecasts a decade later. He will also examine immigration trends other factors currently impacting demographic change and the work force. Tom will also explore unexpected events that may have a profound impact on business activity and how demographic change can either increase or decrease their impact.
