Our 2024 Fall Technical Meeting features a great line up of speakers, an education seminar, technical presentations, and the annual trade show. This event is slated for Sept. 23-25 at The Westin O’Hare in Chicago.

Dr. Anirban Basu

Tuesday Keynote Speaker - The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

Has the Federal Reserve successfully engineered a soft landing? Or is the confluence of geopolitical conflict, a presidential election, rising consumer debt levels, and still high interest rates conspiring to produce an economic downturn? Dr. Anirban Basu, Chairman & CEO Sage Policy group, will provide an in-depth analysis of major factors shaping economic outcomes, including interest rates, global conflict, wage dynamics, business confidence, and demographics.

Brian Blasko

Wednesday Keynote Speaker – Leadership…It’s Not Just a Fancy Title
It’s been said that we follow people we feel comfortable with. Titles like “manager” and “supervisor” are nice, but they do not necessarily guarantee people will follow. Brian Blasko will present skills and strategies on how to enhance leadership potential.
