Day 2

State of the Association, Economy & Industry

ISEA’s Month of Excellence will continue with a focus on association and industry business. ISEA leadership will offer members a look at where the association has come in the last year and plans for the rest of 2021 and beyond. Industry leaders will discuss how the safety equipment industry impacts the US economy and workplace, and the association’s favorite economist will let us know what we can expect from the global economy going forward.
