Join us as we reveal insights from the Committee for Economic Development's (CED) 2020 Solutions Briefs Election Compendium, published this September. The report focuses on the front-line economic and business issues for the 2020 election year and the dramatic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the protests for social justice.

This compendium details a bipartisan road map designed to address the immediate challenges posed by the pandemic’s public health and economic shocks. At the same time, the recommendations position the US to excel in the post-COVID-19 global economy, driving increasing levels of prosperity and opportunity for all Americans.

By attending this webcast, viewers will hear the perspectives of Members of Congress and CED Trustee business leaders on workable solutions to the following critical issues:

  • How government and business leaders can work together to defeat the pandemic;
  • How to meet the critical needs of individuals and businesses most affected by both the health crisis and other social unrest; and
  • How to get Americans back to work safely.

Who Should Attend: Business leaders and those involved in political strategy and policy making
