Back to Business: Life After The Recession

We all recall too vividly the effects of the recession on our businesses and lives. The good news is that after eight years, the nation and Memphis are starting to see improvements. On Thursday, November 12th, 2015, I would like to invite you to hear from Kevin L. Kliesen, Business Economist and Research Officer for the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. He will use his research to paint a picture of the U.S. labor market post-recession.
Kevin will look at a variety of labor market indicators for both the U.S. and the Memphis MSA to gauge where improvement has been the strongest and where it has been the weakest. No matter what industry you represent, you’ll walk away with real data to help you understand market trends and use that understanding to make projections for your business.
We will also hear from Douglas Scarboro, the Memphis regional executive for the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. He’ll break down the various roles of the Federal Reserve Bank and explain the types of data and research they can provide and that you can, in turn, leverage for your business.
Back to Business: Life After the Recession is part of our bi-annual programming for the Greater Memphis Chamber industries councils: International Business, Regional Logistics, Manufacturing and Government Affairs. On top of the valuable data and information you’ll receive from Kevin Kliesen and Douglas Scarboro, you’ll also have the opportunity to network at a high level with individuals across these industries.
Click here to learn more about this joint councils meeting and to register for the event. I look forward to seeing you there. And if you are interested in participating in any of the Chamber industry councils (International Business, Regional Logistics, Manufacturing or Government Affairs), click here to send me an email. I would be happy to provide you more information.
