COVID-19 - Flex Registration
CEDBR is continuing to watch and plan for potential COVID-19 disruptions to our scheduled events. In order to prepare for any outcome, CEDBR has decided to introduce flex registration. With flex registration, all attendees will be automatically registered in an in-person and webinar format. On the day of the event, you can choose either format to attend. We are looking forward to meeting and networking in-person, but we feel it is important to be prepared with a social distancing option. Just click the flex registration button below to reserve your seat.

Business leaders are turning to the Pittsburg Regional Economic Outlook Conference for a glimpse into the region’s economic future.  Founded by Wichita State University’s W. Frank Barton School of Business, the Center for Economic Development and Business Research (CEDBR), and the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce; the purpose of the conference is to provide insight into current local and national economies, addressing topics of interest to the community, region, and state. A combination of state and local experts will be on hand to provide perspectives on issues affecting business, industry, education and government.

                                  Rate Increases to $105 on 10/2/2020
