2022 C2ER Annual Conference + LMI Institute Forum

We want to hear about your work and latest research! C2ER and the LMI Institute are soliciting proposals for the 2022 annual conference and forum, currently planned to be a hybrid (in-person and virtual) event June 13 – 17, 2022 in Columbus, Ohio! The theme this year is The Road Ahead: Using Data to Pave the Way. What does a prosperous future for everyone look like? How do we use data to promote inclusive economic growth and support a diverse workforce? How does this create opportunities for local businesses, economies, and residents?

We invite members and non-members to submit session proposals by Monday, October 25, 2021.
