For over twenty years, Dr. Daraius Irani has served in several senior leadership roles at Towson University. As vice president, Irani provides leadership and management to over 70 highly-skilled professionals who work on campus and in state agencies across the state. Collectively, his teams work to open the doors of the university to solve pressing problems, further community collaboration, expand learning opportunities, and generate economic development. Dr. Irani and the members of his team are committed to making positive impacts through university-community partnerships.

Dr. Irani is also the Chief Economist of the Regional Economic Studies Institute (RESI) at Towson University, a policy group providing economic, fiscal impact, and policy analysis to state agencies, nonprofit organizations, and private sector firms. During his tenure at RESI, Irani has managed and served as lead economist on well over 250 research and analysis projects. He also has produced over 100 economic and fiscal impact statements for a diverse portfolio of clients.

Following the Forecast, the Eastern Shore Delegation Luncheon features the entire Lower Shore Legislative Delegation and their thoughts on what will be the “hot button” issues for the upcoming Maryland General Assembly session. The panel has a moderator overseeing the Q & A.
