Dr. Marci Rossell | Opening Plenary Session

Monday, October 9 | 8:30 – 10:00 a.m.

Marci Rossell, Keynote Speaker at ASCE Convention 2017Dr. Marci Rossell electrifies audiences nationwide, speaking on the nexus of economics, politics, culture and the media. Her animated style was honed when she served as the popular, lively Chief Economist for CNBC in the months immediately following September 11th. She takes complex economic issues, often dull in the button-down business press, and makes them relevant to people's lives, families and careers.

Prior to her career in broadcast journalism, Marci served as Corporate Economist and Investment Spokesperson for OppenheimerFunds, one of the nation's largest mutual fund companies.

Before moving to Wall Street, she was an expert witness for Deloitte and Touche in court cases involving economic issues. Marci began her career as an economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

Marci earned a PhD in Economics from Southern Methodist University, where she was named one of the Young Alumni of the Year in 2002. She brings a world of experience--from Main Street to Wall Street--when discussing the U.S. economy, international events and movements in capital markets.

Industry Leaders Forum | From Disasters to Solutions

In 2005, the City of New Orleans and nearby coastal communities, experienced the historically devastating impacts of Hurricane Katrina. Significant loss of life and property damage in the immediate New Orleans area was attributed to overtopping and failure of levees that were built for hurricane protection.

What followed were investigations, recommendations and lessons learned. The Industry Leaders Forum will be a moderated circumspection of what lasting affect Katrina has had on New Orleans and the civil engineering profession.
