2022 C2ER Annual Conference + LMI Institute Forum

The Council for Community and Economic Research (C2ER) and the Labor Market Information (LMI) Institute are currently soliciting proposals for the next annual conference and forum, which is currently planned to be a hybrid (in-person and virtual) event  June 13 – 17, 2022. Assuming in-person gatherings are safe, the in-person component will take place in Columbus, Ohio! The theme this year is  The Road Ahead: Using Data to Pave the Way. Below is information on this year’s conference and details on how to submit your proposal.

Breakout sessions and individual presentations are a key component to the success of our conference. They enable our attendees to share, learn, converse, and interact with one another on topics of mutual interest and compare research methods, data collection practices, visualization tools, and lessons learned in the field. We invite members and non-members to submit session proposals by Monday, October 25, 2021.
