THE ASSOCIATED Business & Professionals Group kicked off the 2013 Annual Campaign year with another great event at a stellar venue right here in Jewish Baltimore. Home to DLA Piper, the emerald city development perched atop fall’s turning colors presented an incredible site for some powerful networking and delicious cocktails. The event, How Red & Blue Effects Your Green, brought together 80 professionals and five expert panelists around the topic of election and economic effect on business.
The panelists included W. Talbot Daley, Jill Gansler, Tim Hearn, Dr. Scott Rifkin and Paul Tiburzi. The charged conversation was moderated by Art Abramson, Executive Director of THE ASSOCIATED’s Baltimore Jewish Council. The main take away:
Does it matter from the economy stand point who is elected President?
The general consensus was that we’ll most likely be in the same position we are in today economically four years from now. The Presidency matters more for social issues and Supreme Court seating.
This event attracted folks from all business arenas including technology, real estate, financial services, marketing, sales and legal. For many, this was their first ASSOCIATED event.
