A few thoughts from Jon Flora, President & CEO

Welcome to 2020. There’s always something exciting about the curtain rising on another new season. This year is sure to be a production beyond the imagination of even the most creative of us. An election with an unusual cast of characters, a crazy world with players difficult to describe, and an economy that seems to defy prediction. Hopefully, we’ll also have some comic relief in the coming 12 months.
