It’s on the minds of CEOs, the presidential candidates, workers, the unemployed, voters and countless others throughout the country.
The economy will be the topic of discussion during a Lunch & Learn event at the James E. Brown Center on the Dalton State College campus on Thursday, Oct. 4, at noon. Larry Johnson, interim dean of the Dalton State College School of Business, will moderate a panel discussion on the economy with input from Brian Anderson, president and CEO of the Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce; David Jolly, president and CEO of J&J Industries; and Bryan McAllister, vice president for finance at Brown Industries.
The discussion is expected to be wide-ranging and will cover the impact of the economy on national, state, region and local issues, Johnson said. Since the panel includes three speakers familiar with the floorcovering industry, Johnson believes the event will be of great interest to area residents.
“I will kind of lead through a set of questions that are based on the broader economy, looking at some national issues, then perhaps bring it down to some of the state initiatives in economic growth, workforce development and that sort of thing,” Johnson said. “And then I’ll open it up to a few questions about some of the themes going on in the community, some of the initiatives that are under way here in education and downtown development.”
The cost is $10 and includes lunch. Seating is limited. Reservations and advance payment are required by Tuesday, Oct. 2. For more information or to make a reservation, call (706) 272-4473.
