Welcome & Introduction & Economic Outlook


Identification: CAM1801

We are in the tenth year of the economic expansion following the "Great Recession" of 2008 and 2009. During the economic downturn the economy experienced outsized losses in the housing, manufacturing and jobs. Yet, the recovery and expansion has been restrained. While unemployment rates are very low, solid wage gains remains elusive. Inflation has been low and below the Federal Reserve's target for several years, but the Fed has begun to remove its very accommodative policy. 

Mr. Strauss will look at the performance of the overall macro economy with specific attention paid to key economic sectors and indicators for the U.S. economy over the next several years.

  • Key drivers of economic growth
  • Risks to the economic outlook
  • Outlook for Monetary Policy

    Speaker(s):
    • William A. Strauss, CBE, Senior Economist and Economic Advisor, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago

        Workforce For Manufacturers


        Identification: CAM1804

        Even in times of low unemployment, skilled labor is difficult to find and keep, in part because our education system is not preparing students with skills that translate directly to the manufacturing workforce. This presentation outlines the skilled-workforce shortage facing manufacturing today, and how the CareerWise modern youth-apprenticeship program can help address it by moving business from being merely a consumer of talent to becoming a producer of talent.

        • Understand the origin and short- and long-term benefits of modern youth apprenticeship as a new talent-acquisition strategy for the manufacturing industry.
        • Receive a broader understanding of how modern youth apprenticeship can support talent-acquisition strategies for the accounting industry in general.

          R&D Tax Credit Bootcamp


          Identification: CAM18202

          Did you know the federal and over 40 state legislatures have devised multiple tax incentives for certain Research & Development (ā€œR&Dā€) expenses and activities? A majority of all credits claimed are by Fortune 500 corporations because of the lack of knowledge that such R&D incentives are widely applicable to many activities and industries. Even those that are aware of the power of R&D incentives and their wide applicability lack the expertise to appropriately identify and substantiate the claims.

          BRAYN will present on the history, background, eligibility, requirements, and special issues, as well as provide case studies, of several little-known but highly lucrative R&D tax credits.

          Speaker(s):
          • Yong Jeon, JD, LL.M. (Taxation), Partner, BRAYN Consulting LLC
