McDonald Hopkins Energy Forum focuses on job creation:
Featuring Stephen Moore of The Wall Street Journal

Cleveland, Ohio (September 3, 2013) – McDonald Hopkins law firm will focus on job creation in the shale gas industry at its sixth Energy Forum on September 11, 2013. Featuring keynote speaker and panelist Stephen Moore of The Wall Street Journal, the Energy Forum will be webcast live from the firm’s Cleveland office.

The shale boom is fueling business opportunities in the natural gas supply chain as oil and gas companies continue to aggressively transition from exploration to development. Thus, job creation is being stimulated in many sectors – from manufacturing, construction and transportation, to natural gas, chemicals and professional services.

The Energy Forum will explore how companies are capitalizing on the shale boom and the positive effect on job creation, including:

  • The economic impact of the changing oil and gas industry
  • How manufacturers and others benefit from oil and gas development
  • The advantages for businesses and residents of Ohio and other states involved in the shale arena

The other panelists are Michael Snyder, Co-Chair of McDonald Hopkins Energy Practice; Linda Hansen, Founder and President of Prosperity 101, LLC; and Jamie Lefever, Executive Director of Clarion County Economic Development Corporation.

The Energy Forum will be held from Noon to 1:30 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 11, 2013. There is no fee for this program.
