Hear timely information from industry professionals on how the price of oil has affected the economy locally, nationally and globally.
The State of Texas and especially the Houston area have benefitted enormously from high oil prices and new, more efficient ways of recovering oil and gas. Hundreds of thousands of new residents flocked to area, while new jobs electrified the office and housing real estate markets.
As the saying goes, “All good things come to an end.” Or have they?
We are especially excited to have Dr. M. Ray Perryman as our keynote speaker!
Dr. Perryman is President and CEO of The Perryman Group, an economic research and analysis firm based in Waco, Texas.
He was quoted in the February 2, 2015 issue of TIME Magazine for the cover article, entitled: "The Cost of Cheap Gas."
Dr. Perryman has authored more than 2,000 trade articles, publishes a subscription forecasting service and a monthly newsletter, writes a syndicated newspaper column, hosts a daily radio commentary, and appears regularly on National Public Radio.
