Economic Uncertainty Makes Outside Counsel Essential

HARDI's recent announcement of the Institute for Trends Research's Alan Beaulieu appointment as HARDI's Chief Economist comes after an 18 mo. pilot of ITR consulting services for the association through the T.R.E.N.D.S. prgram. Citing the wide array of economic opinions offered through media outlets and often times from distributors' manufacturers, HARDI believes it's important that HVACR distributors have access to a recognized and independent third party such as ITR to help distributor executives make informed strategic decisions, especially during today's unprecedented economic uncertainty.

It is also important to note that Beaulieu, as the association's Chief Economist, will also assist HARDI and its regions in its long term strategic planning, which will help focus the association on the most pressing needs at any given time.
