The Midtown Raleigh Alliance is proud to offer up another in our popular "RECOVERY" series of events designed to give you timely information about the business recovery. All our RECOVERY virtual events are free for members and guests, so feel free to share the invitation.  Attendees will be able to text in questions during and after the presentations.


As business and community leaders, it is imperative for us to 'lead' during this recovery by equipping ourselves with the  knowledge to make tough business decisions.  Understanding the US market and its current outlook along with possible trends arms us with the best tools for responding – both as consumers ourselves, as well as business owners.  Sit back and tune in for a data-driven conversation about our current economic position, what might be driving the surges and contractions, and what the next 24 months might look like. 

Speakers & Presenters

Mary Ann Baldwin

Mayor, City of Raleigh

Raleigh's steady rise to stardom among peer cities hasn't occurred in a vacuum. Raleigh past and future leaders know it takes vision, determination and grit. Mayor Baldwin will share comments and insights with business leaders about the city's need to abruptly pivot due to COVID, and what priorities we can expect the Council to pursue in the coming months.
