On January 16, The Kelly Group held its 11th annual Economic Forum at Maryland Golf and Country Club. With an attendance of more than 230, including clients and guests, the event was once again highlighted—as it has been for all 11 years—by keynote speaker Anirban Basu. Basu, one of this region’s most recognizable economists, again delivered an insightful and entertaining review of the local, national, and global economies and significant economic trends. Partners Bryan Kelly and Chad Arrington also shared their perspectives on The Kelly Group’s culture of service to clients and community.
On January 5-7, The Kelly Group traveled to Cambridge, Maryland for a semi-annual strategic planning session. The two-day meeting allowed the team time to focus and discuss areas such as new technologies, streamlining processes and efficiencies, leadership, and ways to improve our client services. Cambridge, a small town located in Maryland’s eastern shore region in Dorchester County, holds family history and great memories for Bryan Kelly who wanted to share its quaintness with the Team.
