Over 250 business professionals were in attendance at Heartland Bank’s 13th Annual Economic Forum at the Hilton Columbus at Easton on April 5, 2012. This year the Forum featured the insights and retrospect of Dr. Edmond J. Seifried. Dr. Seifried is Professor Emeritus of Economics and Business at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. He serves as Executive Consultant and Chief Economist for the Sheshunoff CEO Affiliation Programs. Dr. Seifried is also a partner in Seifried & Brew LLC, a community bank consulting firm.
“Dr. Seifried’s presentation gave our guests the insights on the impact of 2012 stock market gains, what happens if Europe falters, and Ohio’s role in America’s march to energy independence,” McComb stated. “The Economic Forum is just one of the ways Heartland Bank continues its’ tradition of helping customers by bringing to them sound financial advice and excellent resources to help make valuable decisions.”
As part of the tradition, Heartland also partners with one of our local markets for an early morning breakfast meeting. This year the event went to Newark. The Licking County Chamber of Commerce and Heartland hosted a group of local leaders at the Midland Theatre. Dr. Seifried shared with the audience the impact of Utica Shale in Ohio and Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania and how it can lead to our energy independence.
Heartland provides a quarterly economic update via webinar with Dr. Seifried and is free to the public. To register for this, and future Heartland Bank events, visit HeartlandBank.com/register today.
