You’ve heard the hype for months about the ‘Great American Eclipse’ racing over Central Oregon in August.  Talk of a million potential visitors invading our communities continues. Are you personally ready to witness this phenomenon? Do you understand the potential impact on yourself and your business? Do you just not understand the hype? The Bend Chamber of Commerce and City Club of Central Oregon partner to answer these questions and much more on Tuesday, August 8 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Deschutes Brewery Public House. You’ll learn why it’s worth witnessing darkness for two minutes plus the science behind it, where to view it from a local’s perspective, and how to prepare yourself and your business.

Panelists will include:

Jim Todd, Director of Space Science Education, Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI)
Kristine McConnell, Manager Industry & International Relations,  Central Oregon Visitors Association
Nathan Garibay, Emergency Manager, Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office

Moderated by:

Derek Bickel, Branch Manager at loanDepot in Bend, OR, is a member of the Leadership Bend Alumni and serves on the Board of Directors for City Club of Central Oregon.
Jamie Christman, EVP Community Affairs & Leadership Bend, Bend Chamber

Space is limited. Join us to learn all you need to know about living and working in Central Oregon on August 21, the day of the ‘Great American Eclipse.’

Brought to you by the Advocacy Council of the Bend Chamber of Commerce.
