Event Description:

The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce is hosting its much anticipated, annual 2021 Economic Outlook virtual meeting this year, free to attend, on Thursday, January 28th, 8:00am-9:30am.
The event, sponsored by People’s United Bank, will feature two very special guest speakers—John Traynor of People’s United Bank and Fairfield’s First Selectwoman, Brenda Kupchick.
John Traynor is the Chief Economic Strategist for People’s United Bank.  John joined People’s United Bank in 2011 and serves as Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer.  He directs the overall investment process and has responsibility for the work of the various investment committees.  John also serves as the chief spokesman for the People’s United Wealth Management Group through regular strategy briefings. He appears regularly on CNBC’s Nightly Business Report and Fox Business News, and has been quoted in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. 
Mr. Traynor will give an overview on the current U.S. economy (National and State) and discuss what the expectations and trends may be for the year ahead.
Brenda Kupchick is a proud third-generation Fairfielder who is the second female in the Town’s 380-year history to be elected as First Selectwoman. Brenda’s decades-long commitment to public service includes serving on the RTM and Board of Education, and was elected State Representative of the 132nd District for five terms.  Brenda served on numerous legislative committees including Transportation, Finance, Revenue & Bonding, Housing, and Education. Brenda received the Humane Legislator of the year award from the Humane Society of the United States, and an award from Keep the Promise Coalition for her work on Mental Health. Prior to her time as a state legislator, Brenda served as Constituent Services Representative for U.S. Congressman Christopher Shays and for State Senator John McKinney. Brenda and her husband Peter have also owned and operated a local small business for over 30 years.
What’s in store for our economy in 2021?  The Chamber’s guest speakers will share their unique perspective on the national, regional, state and local economy for 2021. This annual informational meeting is a valuable opportunity to explore this year’s economic outlook, especially after coming off of a tumultuous year in 2020, including the covid-19 pandemic and Presidential election. With a newly elected President in our country, attendees will hear and discover first-hand, key issues, policies and developments that may not only affect people personally, but may have an impact on the business community as well.
“We are very excited to have both John Traynor and First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick as guest speakers for our 2021 Economic Outlook virtual event, as people are always curious about the direction of our economy as we begin a new year”, says Beverly A. Balaz, President of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce.
This informative event is open to the public.
