Rail Symposium Coming Next Week
Don't forget, KMPO, along with our sister agency SRTC, are hosting a 'Rail Symposium' next month.
We're bringing three national rail and freight experts to Spokane on June 22. Avery Grimes, John Ficker, and Arthur Shoener have spent several decades each in the rail industry in a variety of capacities and will present on the continuing evolution of the railroad and its effect on the economics of the inland pacific region.
The International Trade Alliance, Greater Spokane Incorporated, Avista, and Inland Empire Distribution Systems are helping to bring this event to Spokane by sponsoring it. The symposium is free and open to everyone, so come down and learn something new. Here's a flyer for the event.
