Economy at the Mid-Point: Did We Get What We Expected? — Armada Corporate Intelligence

More importantly – what do we expect from this point forward? We know we have rising interest rates and that means a strongerdollar, are we going to see more inflation too?

What does the farm sector have to look forward to and what are the issues of concern in the second half?

Depending on location, our economic speaker will be either Chris Kuehl, Chief Economist for Armada Corporate intelligence, or their managing director, Keith Prather.

Either way, you’ll enjoy their down-to-earth insightful presentation on current economic issues and what that means for the rest of the year.


 


Special Bonus Session:

Governmental Affairs Federal & State Overview — Eric Wareham

Eric Wareham, WEDA Director of Government Affairs, will present a roadmap for the association to follow that will help guide decision making and taking action that is results oriented.

When executed properly, these efforts will expand the size and scope of the association’s influence. The growth of the association in members and geographical area will lead to a commensurate expansion of influence and the ability to achieve desirable policy outcomes.

Working together to raise the profile of the Western Equipment Dealers Association will create many opportunities to effectively advocate for beneficial policy outcomes. This translates directly to a better business environment where successful dealers can thrive.

Equipment dealers have been an integral part of the agriculture economy for the past century, and continued involvement in the political arena will ensure that role for the next century. During this session, you will learn about our current legislative focus.
