Ready for Recovery. Focused on the Future.
This year’s Economic Outlook forum focused on two topics — consumer confidence and labor market trends. Experts provided information and analysis on the business climate, economic performance, emerging trends and attitudes towards future growth. We engaged in a thoughtful discussion of the national and local economy, performance data and perceptions.
