Keith Lay is a recent transplant to Portland. In the last decade and a half, he has seen the effects of rapid change and wealth on Vancouver, BC. He will give a presentation that compares such issues as housing cost and affordability, the effect on neighborhoods, small businesses and the impact on the nascent high-tech scene.

Skip Newberry is the president and CEO of the Technology Association of Oregon. He will follow with a look at some of the innovative solutions that Portland and other jurisdictions are taking to try to manage growth in a way that accounts for issues related to affordability, congestion, and equitable access.
