Established in 1959, NABE serves as the top association for those who work in business economics. It represents industries such as business, academia, and economics, and its membership includes business leaders, former Board of Governor’s chairmen, and former Federal Reserve governors. The NABE offers its members educational offerings, networking opportunities, and prestigious conferences, all of which give members a chance to stay current with business trends.
One of the NABE’s events is its annual economic policy conference, with the 2017 conference scheduled for March 5 through 7. This 33rd annual conference occurs at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC. The 2016 conference had a theme of “Policy Challenges in an Intercontinental World,” and covered the way political and business leaders help their countries and companies navigate through global challenges. Keynote speakers included Federal Reserve Chairman Stanley Fischer and Congressional Budget Office Director Keith Hall.
