(PHOENIX – Dec. 10, 2018) – “Managing The Decision Process During Leadership Change” will be the topic at the Arizona Association for Economic Development’s (AAED) January Phoenix luncheon. It will be held on Jan. 8 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. at 2901 N. Seventh St. in Phoenix.
The speakers will be Mesa Vice Mayor David Luna, William Jabjiniak, economic development director for the city of Mesa, and Brian Friedman, economic development director for the city of Glendale. Rick Ireland, business development manager for Arrington Watkins Architects, will serve as moderator.
It is inevitable that leadership at differing levels of government will occur.

These topics and more will be addressed.
