State of the Economy 2016 Set for Nov. 9

The Business View – October 2016 / News You Can Use

10-2016_soteLast year’s inaugural State of the Economy was a sell-out, and this year’s event promises to draw plenty of members interested in industry segments pushing the local economy forward, as well as the regional and national outlook for 2017.


Hosted by the Mobile Area Chamber, the event will be held Wednesday, Nov. 9, at The Battle House Renaissance Mobile Hotel & Spa.


In September, Mobile Area Chamber members were surveyed about their perspectives on Mobile’s economy. Survey results, along with industry segment presentations addressing commercial and residential real estate, chemicals, distribution and aviation, will be shared at the event.


Following a panel presentation, Adrienne Slack, regional executive at the New Orleans Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, will be the luncheon keynote speaker. Slack oversees the branch’s economic and financial education programs, advises on regional community and economic development matters and provides regional input into the Atlanta Fed’s monetary policy process.


The forum, limited to only 230 participants, will begin at 10:30 a.m. and run through lunch. The cost is $60 for Chamber members and $75 for potential members. Table purchases will also be available for this event. For more information, contact Katrina Dewrell at 251-431-8611 or Register online at
