Want to know how your peers are managing? The Indianapolis Professional Association has assembled local entrepreneurs and
not-for-profit leaders to discuss the topic.
The panel discussion, “Staying Alive and Productive During Economic Hard Times,” will be part of IPA’s
annual networking lunch April 25.
Organizer Bernard Huff said this is the first year the event will include a roundtable discussion. The panelists are M. DeLois
“Dee Dee” Strum, president of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women; Justin Christian, CEO of BC Forward,
an IT consulting firm; Harold Patrick, a local franchisee of Marco’s Pizza; Willis Bright, director of youth programs
at Lilly Endowment; and Lisa Jeff, president of L’Acquis Consulting Engineers.
Huff will moderate the panel discussion. For more information about the event, to be held at Fleming’s steakhouse,
