“The media fears are overstated, as are the recent (US) Congressional Budget Office estimates for growth,” says Beaulieu, a recognized economist and the president of ITR Economics. Beaulieu will deliver the keynote address at the 2013 Executive Conference of the Control System Integrators Association, May 1 – 4.

In his keynote address, Beaulieu will examine both the good and the bad in current forecasts and offer the best course of action for control system integrators, based on “objective reality.”

Other speakers during the conference include CSIA attorney Mark Voigtmann of Faegre Baker Daniels, who returns with his popular 21 Legal Takeaways, and Ted Garnett, president of Performance Resources Consulting, whose SPEED metrics methods help work teams improve performance. The conference also features more than two dozen workshops, networking opportunities and an industry trade show.

More than 400 control system integrators and vendor partners from the United States, Canada, Latin America and abroad are expected at the TradeWinds Island Grand Resort in St. Petersburg, Fla., U.S.
