Here’s an Olympic business fact: According to Lee Benson’s Inside Guide to the Games, the term Olympiad is only used to describe the four-year period between the summer Olympics. The Olympic Winter Games are not part of the Olympiad and so are numbered separately. Salt Lake is the 19th Olympic Winter Games.

These are serious times. Many businesses are now facing the challenges caused by the economic slowdown and the terrorist attacks.

Mark Kanold, Utah Department of Workforce Services Regional Economist, will speak on “The Current Economic Outlook—What Can We Expect.” Call 328-5043 to register or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
