Glen Ellyn, IL – The Bearing Specialists Association (BSA) will welcome Dr. Bruce Yandle, professor of economics emeritus, Clemson University, and dean emeritus of Clemson’s College of Business & Behavioral Science, to the podium on Sunday, May 5, to keynote the business program at its 2013 Annual Convention.

Yandle’s presentation, ‘America’s Uneven Prosperity: What’s Hot and What’s Not’, will take a look at the global economy and then focus on the situation for the US economy. He will consider industries, regions, and states in a search for what’s hot, what’s not, and what’s critically important to the success of bearing distributors. Along the way, he will forecast for US sectors, regions, and industries. Yandle is a fitting introduction to the broader convention theme, ‘We’re all in this to win’, because he will be helping attendees identify where that winning potential is.

Prior to entering an academic career in 1967, Yandle was associated with Bearings & Drives Inc. for 15 years, where he worked his way from truck driver and bookkeeper to vice-president in charge of the firm’s Atlanta region. He offers both an intimate understanding of the industry and a unique perspective on its recovery. Yandle has lectured in graduate programs in France, Germany, Italy and the Czech Republic and is a distinguished adjunct professor of economics with George Mason University’s Capitol Hill Campus, all contributing to his understanding of global economics, a key asset for the top-level leaders in the global bearing industry.

BSA’s 2013 Annual Convention is May 4-7 at the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort and Spa in Hilton Head, SC. For additional information, visit the convention website, http://www.bsaconventions.org.
