Don't miss the excitement at the 75th Annual Meeting! 

The global economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented in its speed and severity. No sector has escaped the lockdown recession.  Manufacturing ground to a halt and the service sector of the economy was profoundly affected. Now that we have been recovering for a few months what do we know about these changes and how will that affect forecasts for the year and into next? To help provide context around this ever-changing new normal economy, Dr. Chris Kuehl, Economist, Managing Director of Armada Corporate Intelligence will lead us in a discussion about what he sees on the economic horizon. He is the chief economist for several national and international organizations: Fabricators and Manufacturers Association, National Association of Credit Management,as well as several state accounting societies If you have participated in one of Chris’ past discussions, you know that it will be informative, insightful and enlightening.
