The Office of Outreach is pleased to announce our upcoming workshops will be happening in an in-person and webcast format. Attendees will automatically be registered for the event in both formats (if applicable). As concerns about COVID-19 continue, flex registration will allow each person to choose which way they would like to attend the workshops.
We look forward to seeing you in-person and online as we provide insight into current local and national economies, and address topics of interest to the community, region, and state.
