THE ECONOMY IS MENDING SO WHY IS THE HOUSING SECTOR STILL SPUTTERING? Find the answer at NELMA’s 82nd Annual Convention from guest speaker, Brendan Lowney of Forest Economic Advisors LLC on Friday afternoon, April 24th immediately following the Grading Committee meeting. Brendan is a Principal of Forest Economic Advisors, the top choice for North American wood products analysis. As Principal, Brendan develops and implements FEA’s business strategies. While he is thrilled to be playing a key part driving the commercial aspects of FEA’s business, he is most excited about his role as FEA’s Macroeconomist.
