“Our programs for the rest of our season are set!
The next ERT program will be January 24, 2017, as the ERT of Jacksonville will facilitate a program on the economic impact of Hurricane Mathew on N.E. Florida. I am very enthusiastic about our speakers. Kevin Bodge, Co-Principal Engineer of Olsen Associates, will discuss the impact on our beaches and surrounding areas including the recent $7.5MM Duval Beach re-nourishment program approved by City Council. Barry Gilway, President/CEO of Citizens Property Insurance Corporation, will discuss the incredibly vast insurance ramifications from Hurricane Mathew.
- On February 13, 2017, Florida State CFO, Jeff Atwater, will update us on the most current topics that are impacting Florida’s economy including recent political events.
- On March 29, 2017, The Federal Reserve will host our traditional program with an economic update. Our speaker will be Chris Oakley, Vice President and Regional Executive at Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta-Jacksonville Branch.
- On April 19, 2017, we will host the local University Presidents who will provide their perspective on the N.E. Florida economic impact of higher education institutions and their exciting plans for the future. Our presenters include: Dr. Cynthia Bioteau, President of FSCJ, Tim Cost, President of JU, and John Delaney, President of UNF. At this event, we will also be awarding scholarships to Business students attending these Universities.
