The panelists will include Gene Barr, president and CEO of the PA Chamber of Business and Industry; Joseph P. Beck Jr., senior vice president and commercial lending manager of Fulton Bank; and John Felmy, chief economist of the American Petroleum Institute.

The panel discussion will focus the construction job market, infrastructure, transportation, finance, technology, Marcellus Shale, and other topics related to construction and design.

"In the past year, there have been a number of positive signs for both the overall economy and the construction industry. The Economic Development Summit will focus on what's next, and whether the positive momentum will continue," Chad C. Harvey, MABX executive director said.
