2022 Projection: As big business tries to streamline things and do things more efficient and direct consumers to a smaller amount of products, hopefully people push back and like variety, handmade and locally owned.
2022 Projection: Talent is only going to continue to leave until we make some changes in salary and professional development. We have to be able to compete with the rest of the country.
2022 Projection: If the pandemic persists, expect to see a lot more people doing outdoor performances. There will be a lot more innovation with pop-up performances and street musicians.
2022 Projection: We will continue to see pretty significant growth over the coming year or two. We will be hiring at a faster clip and may see record numbers of people accessing mental health services.
2022 Projection: The building and development market is going to stay strong despite the rising interest rates. A lot of projects are already in the pipeline or are getting financing in place before rates go up. We’ll continue to see inflation, and the worker shortage and supply chain issues. Maybe beyond 2022, the rising interest rates will slow things down.
2022 Projection: It’s going to be a rough ride. DEI is going to be used as a political tool. My hope is that good will continue to prevail in spite of it. We can choose to be better.
2022 Projection: Our residential development requests in new subdivisions are going to remain strong. You’re going to see an increase in higher end multifamily developments. That’s going to continue to drive our commercial retail.
2022 Projection: Barring some black swan event that could really change global markets, like a terrible variant or global war, I think we have a pretty solid 2022 for an industry. Inflation is an economic certainty, and more supply chain issues are expected.
2022 Projection: We’re going to see business travel come back in a pretty strong way.
2022 Projection: For those who are willing to take risks and who aren’t afraid to innovate and invest in their institutions, the future is extremely bright. You can’t cut yourself or save yourself into prosperity. 2022 is going to be a big year for education.
2022 Projection: We will see philanthropic efforts focused on issues exacerbated by the pandemic, including workforce development, housing, child care, food security and learning loss for some of our students.
