Speakers Gauge Business Landscape - 5/4/2012
GAWDA's Spring Management Conference was held April 29 through May 1 in Baltimore, MD. The conference’s Opening Business Session was headlined by Political Analyst Juan Williams. “I want to speak with you as American leaders,” Williams said, challenging GAWDA members to be proactive as leaders, helping to create change rather than reacting to change. Williams gave a run-down of the upcoming elections, anticipating a close race in the presidential elections.
Economist Andy Bauer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond spoke on the current state of economic recovery, looking at trends in unemployment, manufacturing and construction. While manufacturing is approaching pre-recession levels, the construction sector remains depressed, having lost some two million jobs in the recession.
