The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond and The Belk College of Business at UNC Charlotte will host a panel discussion, "Moving Forward in the New Economy." The program will take place Tuesday, Sept. 22 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at UNC Charlotte's Harris Alumni Center.
"We have created a program that will help people better understand current and future economic conditions that impact their daily lives," said Kimberly Zeuli, the Richmond Fed's Community Affairs Officer and program speaker. "It will be a lively event with plenty of time for discussion."
The program is part of a series organized and presented by the Richmond Fed in collaboration with universities and other organizations. Discussion topics include an update on mortgage foreclosure activity, the regional economy and consumer issues, as well as perspectives on the future of the financial services industry.

Belk College's featured speakers include Dean Joseph B. Mazzola; economist John Connaughton; and finance professor Judson Russell, who will discuss the changing landscape of financial services.
