Event Description:
We are delighted to welcome Dr. Jerry Parrish, Chief Economist & Director of Research for the Florida Chamber Foundation, as our Distinguished Speaker on Monday, August 26th. 

In his role at the Foundation, he is responsible for conducting in-depth analyses on the Florida economy and on solutions to help secure Florida’s future. He has raised concerns recently that the ongoing trade wars have raised the probability of a Florida recession to almost 21 percent in the next nine months.

Dr. Parrish previously was the Chief Economist and Director of the Center for Competitive Florida at Florida TaxWatch. Prior to that position, he served as the Associate Director of the Center for Economic Forecasting & Analysis (CEFA) at Florida State University, and has many years of experience in the private sector in management roles at international manufacturing companies.

Dr. Parrish is currently an Adjunct Instructor in the Masters in Applied Economics Program at Florida State University.  He earned a B.S. in Agricultural Business and Economics from Auburn University, an M.B.A. from Bellarmine University, an M.S. in Economics from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and a Ph.D. in Economics from Auburn University. He regularly publishes research reports and articles on the Florida economy and Florida’s competitiveness.

The 2019 Distinguished Speaker Program is sponsored by Douglas Williams Executive Health Program.
