Construction has been growing for more than eight years nationally, statewide and in the Bay area. But there are increasing signs that the economy is slowing. Will construction also run out of steam? Or can the industry keep growing for at least another year, either nationwide or locally? Ken Simonson, AGC of America's chief economist, will peer into his crystal ball to say what types of construction will thrive or dive and what that implies for painting and glazing contractors.
Lunch will be provided after presentation. Please contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org
