    Northern New England and our country as a whole are entering unprecedented economic territory as impacts from COVID-19 continue to affect employment, consumer spending, trading, and availability of goods. Firms in the A/E/C industry are in the process of responding to the current recession and preparing for future economic fluctuation. How is the general economy in Northern New England faring and which markets will be most affected by the economic downturn? Which of our clients are best positioned to remain stable and continue capital project spending through 2021? Join us for a presentation from Amanda Rector, Maine State Economist, where these questions and other economic trends will be discussed.
