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.

Jeremy Hill, director of the Center for Economic Development and Business Research at Wichita State University,
will talk about the current economic conditions, economic drivers for the state and regional economies, and
general expectations over the coming months.  Topics to be included are labor demand, costs, and wages. 
A local speaker will provide an in-depth analysis of the local economy, with assistance from CEDBR.

The cost to attend an event is $50, which includes the forecast booklets ($100 value). 

All attendees will receive a one-year subscription to CEDBR’s forecast booklets. The center has developed
two in-depth publications and reference guides on regional and statewide economic conditions in Kansas.

  The Kansas Economic Trends, published in October, includes the state-wide Economic Conditions survey results, Kansas Industry news and Developments, and indicators for seven regions of the state along with the largest 25 counties.  
 

The Kansas Economic Review, published in February, provides an in-depth analysis of three key segments of the state economy: households, industries, and governments. Each segment takes a broader view in how it is interconnected with current economic conditions.
