Please join us for TEA's 78th Annual Business Meeting & Luncheon where we will review our 2017 accomplishments, the Association’s financial health and the practical HR Solutions we provide that promote operational excellence. Chair Herb Herbruck will share his thoughts and observations from the Board’s perspective, President Dave Smith will talk about our future plans and Michael McKeown (Principal with mkp Certified Professional Accountants) will provide a review of 2017 Financials and compare how your Association measures up to similar groups.
TEA has provided practical HR Solutions to the West Michigan business community for nearly 80 years by ensuring that you have the tools and resources necessary to make sound and appropriate operational decisions. Recognizing the volatile and unpredictable nature of today’s Business AND Economic Markets, we are pleased to welcome Stifel, Nicolaus & Company’s Chief Economist, Lindsey M. Piegza, as our Keynote Speaker this year.
Lindsey, a nationally-recognized expert on economic issues, is a regular presenter on MSNBC, CNN and other business news outlets. She will share her perspectives on the pace of economic recovery (and what it means for our economy going forward), interest rates and monetary policy (and how each effects business stability and consumer confidence). She will interpret trends in consumer behaviors, in the manufacturing sector, and reveal how new Federal Reserve policy initiatives will impact our economy. Economic growth, employee availability, interest rates and the global financial concerns – all strategic considerations as we live and work in West Michigan – will be discussed to help provide the insights needed to succeed and grow during these critical economic times.
Lindsey M. Piegza, Ph.D.
