At the event, Dr. Parrish, chief economist and director of research for the Florida Chamber Foundation, gave an update on Brevard County’s robust manufacturing series and how it is positively influencing economic growth and job creation.

Elder law attorney Erik Shuman, managing director in GrayRobinson’s Melbourne law firm office weighed in as well, detailing, “We have about 25 of these forums statewide, and probably 25,000 people in the various communities attend them on a yearly basis. They are fascinating forums. We have leaders such as Dr. Parrish who come in and speak to our clients and friends of the firm. The attendees have the opportunity to learn more about what’s going on in their communities. We were delighted to have Dr. Parrish as our speaker.”
