Our Rapidly Changing Econdomy:  
Can Our Businesses Adapt?

When the federal government catches a cold, everybody in our region feels bad.  An achy feeling is hitting many local businesses, public budgets, and households.  Aspirin will not help, but join us for dinner as we look for remedies.

Find out from our distinguished speaker
David Versel

Center for Regional Analysis

The wealthiest region in the country now must face some harsh realities.  Being next door to the federal government has in the past insulated the regional economy.  No more.  Federal government contracting has been reduced significantly and federal employment has declined.  Now the federal government is a drag on growth.  We face a new reality.  Private sector business must replace the once mighty federal government dynamo.  Can we do it?
