The Rensselaer County Regional Chamber of Commerce set to host 2020 Economic Outlook panel with Bouchey Financial Group at Loft 433



On Wednesday, February 5, the Rensselaer County Regional Chamber of Commerce will host the latest edition of their ‘Ask The Experts’ series, with a luncheon panel discussion centered around economic outlook in 2020. The panel will consist of three experts from Bouchey Financial Group’s investment team: Steven B. Bouchey, CFP®, Ryan S. Bouchey, CPA and Martin X. Shields, CFP®. The event will be held at Loft 433, the brand-new event venue in downtown Troy.

The annual session aims to provide attendees with an overview of the multitude of macroeconomic factors they can expect to have an impact on their businesses in 2020. Discussion topics include forecasting the economic effects of the upcoming US Presidential election, an examination on tightening labor markets, potential changes in the manufacturing sectors, as well as the uncertainty that comes with continued tariff discussions with China. The aim of the session it to highlight how these large, geo-political events will have an impact on businesses on a local level. Attendees are encouraged to join the discussion and bring along any pertinent questions they’d like answered.

“The session provides our membership with a thorough preview of what to expect this year, and viable steps they can take to be better prepared,” said Kate Manley, President of the Rensselaer County Regional Chamber of Commerce. “We always receive tremendous feedback from our attendees of this annual panel, and we’re excited to host this year’s discussion at the all-new Loft 433.”

Tickets for the event are on sale now at www.renscochamber.com. The price for members is $35 in advance to attend. This year’s economic outlook panel is sponsored by SEFCU®.
