Associate Professor of Economics, Regional Economist,

Economics and Finance at UNCW

Meeting date: February 1, 2018    12:00pm

Presentation: “Insight in Wilmington’s Economy and where our region is headed”


The speaker at the IRT February meeting will be Dr. Adam Jones, Associate Professor of Economics, Regional Economist, Economics and Finance at the University North Carolina Wilmington.  Prior to pursing his PhD in economics, Dr. Jones was the Director of Economic Development with the Covington/Newton County Chamber of Commerce in Covington, GA. His responsibilities included business recruitment, retention and expansion of existing businesses and public policy development. Most recently Dr. Jones spoke at the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce about Wilmington’s Regional Scorecard.  The region has lost ground in the science and technology sectors but has seen growth in the service industry.  Dr. Jones said “to a large extent, this mirrors national trends, but it’s been more pronounced in the Wilmington region”.  I am sure Dr. Jones will have keen insights into Wilmington’s economy and where our region is headed.

IRT is an educational forum for the presentation and exchange of financial, economic and business information to assist private investors in the management of their individual financial assets.  IRT is not an “investment club” and speakers are not making sales presentations.  Monthly meetings (9 per year) are held at the Country Club of Landfall.  Lunch is served at noon, followed by the featured speaker and a question-and-answer period ending by 1:30pm. Our presenters, recognized leaders in their respective fields, speak on subjects relevant to the current investment and economic environment.  New members and guests are welcome and encouraged at all meetings.  If you would like to attend, please contact Cliff Brock at cliffbrock@ec.rr.com at least one week before the meeting
