November 18, 2014, The 2014 Midterm Election's Effect on San Diego's Economy

Tuesday, November 18 Panel Discussion


A most important national election took place on November 4th and it will undoubtedly have ramifications here in San Diego. All 435 members of Congress and 33 Senators are on the ballot. Our California Governor, state representatives and four San Diego City Council seats will also be determined on that day.


Our panel of experts will analyze the results and forecast what it means to our area. These individuals were chosen because of their diverse insight into our economy. There will be an opportunity for attendees to interact with our panel.


The seminar was sponsored by the San Diego Chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants and the School of Business and Management of National University.  A recording of the event is available here:



The Accounting Circle is the organization for accounting students and seasoned professionals providing its members with the opportunity to network, share academic and work experiences, and obtain useful information about CPA and other accounting certifications.

It’s also the best place to learn about the various sectors of professional accounting -- public accounting, corporate accounting, nonprofit and government accounting -- from guest speakers who have substantial work experience in these areas.

Members learn about review courses for the CPA Exam and other certifications. And about the benefits -- especially the networking opportunities -- of student membership in professional accounting organizations including CalCPA, IMA, CIA, and AICPA.

Quarterly meetings for  members are conducted online live so you can participate from anywhere.  (If you are unable to attend a meeting, you can view the recorded session at your convenience.)  A “discussion board” provides a text messaging platform for interactive discussions on relevant issues “24/7”.


  "The sky's the limit!"
