CFA Society Mississippi hosts our Annual Forecast Dinner at the start of each year to bring together investors and investment professionals and foster an environment of camaraderie and education. Our Annual Forecast Dinner has become one of the premier financial forecast events in the country, regularly hosting over 500 attendees. Each year we bring together industry experts from the fields of fixed income investments, equity investments, and/or economics to discuss the current economic environment and how they see markets progressing for the upcoming year.

Our 17th Annual Forecast was held Thursday, February 27, 2020 at the Country Club of Jackson. Cocktails were served from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM, with dinner and the program immediately after.
