HunterMaclean’s 2022 Critical Issues Forum Focuses on The New Workplace

The 2022 HunterMaclean Critical Issues Forum on The New Workplace took place on Thursday, September 22, at the Savannah Technical College Eckburg Auditorium. An audience of 155 local business and community leaders heard from a panel of community leaders on the challenges, changes, and innovations of the post-pandemic workplace.

HunterMaclean attorney and partner Sarah Lamar served as moderator of the event, which featured a panel including Amy Ariano, Vice President, Human Resources with Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation; Ivy D. Council, Executive Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer with CitiTrends; and Michael T. Owens, CEO/President of the Tourism Leadership Council.

“We are excited to once again host the Critical Issues Forum and have such a distinguished and knowledgeable panel as part of our discussion,” said managing partner Brad Harmon. “The two year delay of this annual event is itself a direct result of COVID-19. We have all seen firsthand the effect this pandemic has had on our workplaces and hope this event provides valuable direction to multiple business leaders and local industries.”

The HunterMaclean Critical Issues Forum is an annual speaker series launched in 2004 that invites speakers to address an issue of importance to the community.
