WESTRENDS

The WESTRENDS board is comprised of one legislator from each of the 13 western states. It provides a forum and an opportunity to evaluate the direction and velocity of trends that affect the quality of life in the West through conversations with futurists and demographers. In a region that is increasingly defined by rapid change, WESTRENDS focuses on the implications for policy makers of the demographic, economic and cultural trends that are shaping the western states.
