The expansion that followed the “great recession” is approaching it tenth birthday.

In this session, Dr. Roger Tutterow provides a timely overview of the national, regional and Iowa economies. Special emphasis will be placed on evidence of resurgence in the manufacturing sector, the outlook for consumer spending and the retail sector, the role of currency valuation on the balance of trade, the ongoing normalization of interest rates and monetary policy, performance of real estate markets and the implications of ongoing changes in the political and regulatory climate for the financial services industry.

2:45 p.m. Take Off the Mask – Is Your Life Story Worth Telling
Dan Meers, Mascot, Kansas City Chiefs
It’s been said that if you ask a man his occupation you will find out how he pays his bills, but if you ask a man his preoccupation then you will discover the passion of his life. Dan Meers has a rather unique occupation. For over 25 years he has paid his bills by working as “KC Wolf” the mascot of the Kansas City Chiefs. However, Dan’s preoccupation, what he is truly passionate about is encouraging others to strive for the best in life and to enjoy it each and every step along the way. Dan believes that your life is like a Coin. You can spend it anyway you wish but you will only get to spend it one time, so spend it wisely. During this presentation Dan shares some of the valuable lessons he’s learned during his long career as a professional mascot. Whether at home, work or in the community, Dan challenges his audience to live each day to the fullest by wisely investing their lives and not just spending them.
