BN Numbers Show Positive Trends

BN Economic Development Council

All of the three major economic factors considered for the quarterly event "BN By the Numbers" show positive signs of improvement.

GLT's Willis Kern finds out more in this interview with Mike Doherty, Senior Economist with the Bloomington-based Illinois Farm Bureau. Doherty gives the presentation at Thursday's quarterly event, which will be held during the noon hour Thursday September 29 at ISU's Bone Student Center.

The featured speaker is central Illinois' own Ed Brady, who is president of the National Home Builders Association. Both national and regional trends in the housing industry will be analyzed. Following Brady's  talk, there will be a panel discussion featuring local experts in the housing industry.

Willis is a Bloomington, IL, native. During his senior year at Bloomington High School, he finished third in the "Radio Speaking" division of the state speech contest, the only year he competed.
