Notes from IBDEA Headquarters

WOW! Whew! That pretty much sums up September for the Executive Management team. All the puzzle pieces fell into place, and we finally released the updated website, IBDEA.org. We still have a few tweaks here and there to make, but we hope you like it as much as we do.

As our Members-Only Info Series events are coming to an end, we want to thank all the presenters and attendees. We have two Info Series events scheduled this month and one open spot left in early November. It's been great seeing everyone via Zoom, but nothing replaces in-person events like our annual Conference.

Conference 2022 is just around the corner! Stay up-to-date with all things Conference, such as our Keynote Speakers, Workshops, Schedule, Sponsors, and so much more in our event-specific newsletter, Conference News. We hope to see you all March 3-7 in Orlando, FL, to celebrate our Golden Anniversary.

The IBDEA is excited to announce that Henry Fishkind, Ph. D., will be a keynote speaker at the 2022 Conference! With over 30 years of experience in economic analysis and forecasting, Dr. Henry Fishkind is widely regarded as one of Florida's premier economists and financial advisors.

Dr. Fishkind's career began in the public sector, where he worked as an economist and associate professor at the University of Florida. In 1980, Dr. Fishkind became the associate director for programs at the University of Florida's Bureau of Economic and Business Research. During his tenure at the university, Dr. Fishkind served from 1979-1981 on the governor's economic advisory board. He began his career as a private-sector consultant when he became president of M.G. Lewis Econometrics in Winter Park, Florida. In 1988, Dr. Fishkind formed Fishkind & Associates, Inc. as a full-service economic and financial consulting firm. In 2019, Dr. Fishkind sold his business's financial advisory, consulting, and real estate advisory portions while keeping the expert witness portion, Fishkind Litigation Services, Inc.

What type of information can Dr. Fishkind provide to your organization to help you thrive in this economy?

IBDEA Member Testimonial
Sherri Iskra

IBDEA is the perfect blend of business and social interaction that makes belonging to the association both fun and beneficial for our family-owned business. Sharing the experience of previous successes and failures with friends and business associates saves time and money, which allows more time for our family development. Everyone is so willing to share their experiences to help one another. Why design a new wheel if someone else has perfected it? 

We have been a member since 1974 and have seen the change over the years from a more social association to a technical business development association. On the supply side, IBDEA has assembled the most extensive array of associate members that have enlarged our supply chain and expanded our capabilities. IBDEA even has a next-generation segment to help develop our family succession! If you are looking to have a lot of fun interacting with some really cool people, help your customers and grow your business while increasing your profits, there is no better group to join!
