RALEIGH, N.C. – The 12th Annual Economic Forecast Forum, sponsored by BB&T and hosted by the North Carolina Bankers Association and North Carolina Chamber on Monday, January 6 at the Sheraton Imperial, RTP, will include multiple outlooks for the year ahead. The Forum spotlights key business and political leaders who look to the future of the economy in our state, region and nation.  The main session of the Forum, co-sponsored by BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina, Business North Carolina and Duke Energy, will feature a keynote address from Kelly King, Chairman & CEO of BB&T. 

“As we move into 2014, our country must compete globally.

All attendees at the Forum can look forward to gaining insight from economic experts and participating in discussions revolving around specific implications for investors,” observes Thad Woodard, President & CEO of the NCBA.
