Community Outlook Events

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.  

CEDBR is continuing to watch and plan for potential COVID-19 disruptions to our scheduled events. The 2022 Spring Community Outlook Events will be held in-person only at this time. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 restrictions as the event gets closer. If we are unable to meet in-person due to regulations, we will do the event via webinar. We are looking forward to meeting and networking in-person, but we feel it is essential to be prepared if we must do the event remote this year.

  Included in the price of the Regional Event is a one-year subscription to the
CEDBR forecast booklets ($100 Value), which are 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.
