Planning in a Sea of Uncertainty sponsored by Catholic Community Foundation
About the Program
At any point in time, there are many external forces that make planning difficult. The present time is certainly no exception, and an argument can be made that the turbulence in today’s economic, political, and legislative arenas is as strong as it’s ever been. No one is better to navigate these choppy waters than Leon LeBrecque, who plans to guide us through the below:
- Are we headed for a recession and are there things we can do to prepare?
- Will market volatility be with us for awhile and what does that mean?
- The SECURE Act is likely to pass – are there things we can do to prepare for that?
- What other legislation in Washington bears watching?
