During the conference, Campbell County's Jim Engel, Wyoming Workforce
Services Council Chairperson, addressed the attendees of the Summit to

as it relates to our economy. Many echoed the sentiment that we're
experiencing minerals industry setbacks, but that Wyoming is no stranger to
the ebbs and flows of natural resource price fluctuations and this will
just require us to refocus as we come together to work toward a solution.
