The EXPO 2015 “Finance Panel” discussed the hottest topics related to clubs and their money management, especially as it related to “Operation Choke Point”
This year’s new EXPO Money Panel gained instant prominence as the second go-to informational event at EXPO 2015, along side the Legal Panel. Two separate monetary initiatives threaten to involuntarily convert adult nightclubs into non-profit organizations; the Justice Department’s Operation Choke Point and extreme state minimum wage increases.
The panelists were Dave Ericks, of Ericks Consultants, lobbyist for Florida SEA, the state’s ACE chapter, Warren Cato, managing partner of Club Control Systems and Bruce Renard, Executive Director of the National ATM Council, Inc. (NAC). E.D. Associate Publisher Dave Manack moderated.
