Greater Akron Chamber and Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce Present Economic Outlook 2020

11/12/2019
Greater Akron—The Greater Akron Chamber and Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce invite you to attend this year’s Economic Outlook 2020 for discussion about the national economic outlook, trends for Northeast Ohio and a panel discussion with perspective from top industry leaders on what they expect to transpire in 2020 for their industries and its impact on the Akron/Canton region.

The volatility in the nation’s economy has increased over the last year and, depending on who you talk to, the economy seems to be signaling anything from slower growth to a recession could occur in 2020. Our panelists have been key participants in looking at the economic trends for their businesses, considering global, national and regional conditions and leading their teams to a 2020 forecast that reflects their expectations for the year ahead.  

In addition to providing a broad summary of regional trends, Jacob Duritsky, Vice President of Strategy and Research at Team NEO, will moderate the panel discussion featuring:
  • Lisa Aurilio, Chief Operating Officer at Akron Children’s Hospital.  
  • Jon Park, CEO & Chairman, Westfield Bank
  • Doug Sibila, President & CEO, Peoples Services, Inc.
  • Jackie Stewart, Director of External Affairs, Encino Energy
  • Steve Strah, CFO, FirstEnergy Corp.
