For the first time, Vectra Bank Colorado will broaden participation in its popular economic forecast breakfast by broadcasting the event online.

The breakfast, set for Jan. 18, will be streamed live from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. on the Web site at www.vectrabank.com. Registration and more information is available at www.vectrabank.com/webcast.jsp. Online participants will be able to ask questions of the speakers.

The breakfast will feature Mark Snead, a vice president and economist with the Denver branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City; Patty Silverstein, president of Development Research Partners, a Colorado-based real estate analysis and economic development research company; and George Feiger, chief executive officer of Contango Capital Advisors based in San Francisco.

“We are fortunate to have such a wide breadth of expertise at Vectra’s economic forecast breakfast this year to speak around the most important economic indicators and factors for our clients’ financial success in 2012,” said Bruce Alexander, president and CEO of Vectra Bank. “More than just discussing the factors that will impact our economic recovery in 2012, each of our speakers will provide a broader and deeper perspective that also includes challenges, bright spots and unknowns to consider this year.”
