Symposium to give forecast for the economy in 2014

What does the economy hold for 2014? An event in South Mississippi will look to answer that question.

Hosted by the Southern Miss College of Business and the Trent Lott National Center, the event will run from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The event is free but seating will be limited.

“This event is the university’s opportunity to bring together business professionals, elected officials and local concerned citizens to discuss the economic outlook for our nation, state and local region,” said Shannon Campbell, executive director of the Trent Lott Center. “Our guest presenters are highly respected for their expertise and they will share economic trends for 2014 that affect our ability to plan for business and job growth.”

Scheduled speakers include: Robert Strand, senior economist, American Bankers Association; Darren Webb, senior economist, Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning; Jack Norris, president, Gulf Coast Business Council; Chad Newell, Ppesident, Area Development Partnership; and Lee Lawson, president and CEO, Baldwin County Economic Development Alliance
