At a 2010 NACM North Central meeting, former Minnesota state demographer Tom Gillaspy provided forecasts about a rapidly aging and slower growing labor force, increasing levels of retirements and increasing difficulties in filling critical positions. What did he get right, what did he get wrong and what wasn’t even on the radar screen back then?

On May 14, 2020, NACM North Central presented its annual Fresh Ground conference virtually. Tom  provided the keynote presentation, Predictions from 10 Years Ago. He reviewed his forecasts a decade later and explored unexpected events that may have a profound impact on business activity nationwide. For the benefit of NACM North Central members who were unable to attend, the keynote recording is available here
