Crystal Ball Reappears At TriCounty Chamber Breakfast

Speaker Jim King.

King, president and chief investment officer of National Penn Investors Trust Company, this Thursday (Jan. 13, 2011) makes what has become his annual foray to the TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce Economic Forecast Breakfast to offer is thoughts on what lies ahead for the local, state and national economies, as well as a review of notable market and economic events during 2010.
