Program Description:  Continuing Education Credits


This program will focus on the 2017 economic outlook in light of the change in Presidential Administration and the activity we have seen to date from the Administration.  The first month(s) of the Trump Presidency have been filled with a dizzying pace of announcements and activity.  This program will attempt to take a step back at the bigger picture of how recent activities may or may not impact the economy moving forward. In particular, the impact of regulatory, fiscal, trade, immigration, and monetary policy on economic trends will be examined.  How should we react in light of our own ongoing business and client relationships? 


7:00 – 7:15

Questions and Answers from the Audience.

Continuing Education has been approved for MCLE, CPE & CFP. Insurance credit is not available for this meeting.
