Fresh insights into Connecticut's economic picture from leading experts and analysts

The U.S. is in the midst of a sustained economic recovery. However, Connecticut continues to lag behind. Experts will discuss how Connecticut can fully participate in the economic resurgence at the Connecticut 2014 Economic Update on Friday, May 9, in Cromwell.

Joseph Kelley, president of Stop and Shop New England, will deliver the opening address before a crowd of 200 business leaders at the Crowne PlazaCromwell.

Ryan Sweet, director and senior economist with Moody's Analytics, is the conference's featured speaker and will discuss the U.S. economic outlook.

Other speakers will examine the record growth projected in the state's aerospace industry over the next decade (and why that growth could pose a workforce problem), and what the outcome of this year's legislative session means for the state's economy and job creation.

This event is sponsored by Mahoney Sabol & Company, LLP, and JPMorgan Chase & Co.
