CBIZ and Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. Polsinelli
invite you to join us for the 2013 Kansas City Real Estate and Economic Outlook event
November 15, 2013, 8:00 am - 3:00 pm Kansas City Marriott Downtown

The uncertainty that exists in the American Economy continues to be the central focus of most Americans as we try to structure our transactions for the balance of 2013 and start of 2014. Recent headlines have contained conflicting data concerning budget wranglings, government shutdown, the true cost of Obamacare, tax incentives, and the unemployment rate. In addition, another question that has hit our radar screen is whether we are going to suffer another bust in the real estate market.


CBIZ and Mayer Hoffman McCann P.C. along with Polsinelli are proud to be hosting a real estate and economic outlook seminar designed to give you an advantage as we peer into the future.


Our two firms are very excited to bring a well-seasoned, diverse, talented group of speakers together for the day to share their knowledge and expertise about their perspective on what is taking place today and its impact into the future. We hope you can join us on November 15th to learn and hear their thoughts on how the current recession is affecting their industries. This is an event you don't want to miss!
