District Dialogues: The Economics of an Aging America

6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Richmond Office
Richmond, VA

Registration has closed. Thank you for your interest.

Join the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond for the third installment of District Dialogues, a forum dedicated to giving community members the opportunity to engage with experts on the biggest economic issues facing our District.

On Tuesday, August 9, we will bring together leading experts to discuss the economics of aging in America. When you attend this session, you’ll learn:

  • How the changing demographic trends of America impact our overall economy
  • How and why to prepare now – no matter what stage of life you’re in – for your own aging
  • What impact today’s aging population has on our workforce
  • How policy can impact the decisions people make as they age, what policies might minimize challenges faced by people as we age and how these policies impact younger generations

Whether you’re Gen Z, a Baby Boomer or somewhere in between, we will approach the topic of aging from every stage of life so you will leave understanding how the aging population directly impacts you, from real estate and work life choices to caregiving and financial decisions.

How to Attend

Plan to join us August 9 in person to ask questions of our panelists, network with fellow attendees and enjoy refreshments beginning at 5 p.m. Continue the conversation over dessert and coffee starting at 7:30 p.m.

If travel to Richmond is not possible for you, we will also offer a live-streamed version of the event. Simply select which option works best for you when you register.

District Dialogues is a free event, but registration is required. Please be aware that you must follow the Richmond Fed’s COVID-19 protocols while on our premises — details will be provided in advance of the event. If you cannot attend in person, there is a virtual option that you may select during registration.

Once you register, follow us on social media to join us in our lead-up discussions related to the economics of aging and share your own thoughts using the #DistrictDialogues hashtag.
