Annual Economic Outlook
The 2013 Economic Outlook had more than 160 in attendance, a record showing for the event and a testament to the interest our area has in the local and regional outlook. Brian Shull, Harrisonburg's Director of Economic Development, and Billy Vaughn, Rockingham County's Director of Development, gave the local update and outlook for the year.
